I seem to be the only woman here with karma in the 5 digits. My karma hit 10K on 01/29/15. Long before that, HN felt like excessive drama to me.

I felt that helped explain what I was experiencing, in spite of still being ridiculously short of the leaderboard. The situation is also silly because I never managed to get a tech job, even though I have a Certificate in GIS.
