Oh, Baby, it hurts (but not so good). (super-long)

So, I was going to write about how people don't know how to "lose gracefully".

(This is not going in the direction you think it is. Oh, sure, it might veer onto some well-trodden roads, but...)

In Atlantia, there is a bunch of information on how to write documentation. There's oodles of advice about what the judges are looking for. There's even checklists you can, well, check to see if you've missed anything when you put the result of your blood sweat and tears into competition. When it comes to dealing with the feedback you get, though, everyone becomes less helpful.
