Programmer Influencers piss me off to Jupiter and back.

The ones who talk about just being a programmer, and don't do normal tutorials and solve a real-world problem and demonstrate it.

    Ugh yeah, I fucking hate those. Especially the ones saying shit like "10 things you should be doing"... As if there's one answer to every problem and no need to be adaptive

    I can think of one:

    How to obfuscate your code to increase your job security.

    In other words:

    Use non commonly used features or software paradigms.

    Dumb people trying to win a popularity contest. Could be a politician here and there. It's for sure everyone that claimed to be an influencer I've seen so far.

    Doesn't help that real news outlets also use click bait titles now. If you are lucky the summary actually tells you what it is about.
    Just the stupid language in the tiles like "... boss" or "Harry potter star" ticks me off. You can name the name of the person or at least just say CEO of ... .

    @bigmonsterlover Sure it is. I just like the videos i liked watching. If i start watching one but don't feel like giving a like, it obviously baited me into clicking it without me actually liking it and i just stop watching it.

    All in all, i don't like spending my attention on the videos i don't like. I always report actual scams and the telegram impersonators though.
