In the past two weeks I’ve seen two seasoned investors trying to bully YC founders. In both cases the founders were first time founders and stood up to the bullies. I’m proud of them.

Cheers to all the investors treating founders with respect ✊🏽. There are far far more good angel investors than bad ones.

Hmm - make that 3 investors and 3 founders. Should have waited till the morning to write this.

Lesson for YC founders - read founders reviews on YC investor database. Great investors really stand out!
