WORKING FOR THE INTERNET IS WEIRD, DUDES. This piece is pretty great. I've never received one-hundredth the scrutiny Lindy has, and I'm pretty sure I couldn't handle it—even being called a cunt by a stranger once every few months or so freaks me out. (5, 4, 3...) I really like that she talks about how comments actually affect her, instead of just pretending she doesn't read 'em like everyone else does. Good stuff.
