This is a place where people can anonymously vent about that one facet (or tons!) of their field that always seems to stump them. Impostor Syndrome is prevalent in every area of work or leisue where people can be found attempting to excel.

You might notice some posts that are nearly transparent. Those are non-serious posts from people who use this site as a way to make (mostly) crappy jokes.
