You get that warm feeling
when you log to E2
and you see you just have gained experience
. You check out the catbox
and perhaps even Cool Man Eddie
has been there.
Then you check the e2 node tracker and see that one of your little factual node lambs has been upvoted.
They had gone unnoticed when they were released onto this jungle. Perhaps they got a +1, or perhaps not.
But weeks or months after you had thought them dead, someone finds them and reads them. Perhaps they were looking for them, or find them by random chance; but they like them!
And it all makes you feel warm and nice inside.
