The act of constantly sharing the same opinion in a forum full of people who are obviously known to have the same opinion as yours, therefor granting you free upvotes to said opinion, while gathering downvotes to anyone that opposes you on the matter.
Nearly any website that governs itself through up and downvotes, and inevitably estabilishes "approved" opinions, which leads to the formation of a circle jerk.
Well-known places of programming-related circle jerk
- "Hacker" News
- rustlang communities (jesus christ the zeal)
- golang communities (jesus christ the zeal)
- reddit r/golang
- any common people golang chat group near you
- places that practices cult of personality, e.g. comment section of uncle-bob's birdsite posts:
from one of uncle-bob's fan apparently (https://twitter.com/scutrsft/status/1368076626194362368)
@unclebobmartin is always right
