Obscurity is a Gift

You have a great idea, you write a blog post in five minutes, you post it.

A friend reads it, they message you and say, “Hey, I know you had the best intentions, did you consider how this could be misinterpreted?”

Oops, you didn’t. You misspoke, and could be easily misunderstood. No big deal. You take the blog post down, and it was like you never posted it at all. No harm, no foul.
