This post now lives here. At the time I considered it bad and barely worth posting, for the reasons described within, but looking back on it now I am impressed by it; I didn't realize it was written so well and convincingly, in a unique style, as if to overwhelm the audience with impressively high standards, and to shame them into adopting those standards by way of example. This is interesting to me because usually the opposite happens. Usually I'm like "wow, this is great" and then a year later I look back on what I've written and think it's horrible. Maybe that means I've stopped progressing.
