The proudly self-styled curmudgeon lawyers that spend their time mob-criticizing other lawyers online need to own it for what it is. You are not helping the profession, nor is that the intention.

You are engaged in dopamine-induced social media high fives with your self-congratulatory cliques when you attack. Embrace your inner true urinal cake nature and stop pretending to advance the profession."
