Adorable Web Geek Comes Out On Facebook; Supportive Friends Nerd Out In Response

When you come out to friends you’re never quite sure what the reaction will be: Some may embrace you off the bat, others may feel hurt you didn’t come clean sooner. One reaction we’d never anticipate is our pals nagging us that the layout design of our coming-out post isn’t fabulous enough.

That was the fate of one unnamed tech geek HappyPlace.com discovered: After congratulating the poster—who came out on a Facebook status update and followed up with a piece on his blog to prove it wasn’t a hack—his friends bemoan the lame HTML design of his site and immediate begin plans to zhoosh it up a bit.

It’s all tongue in cheek, though: One friend even commented: “It takes a lot of guts to post things on a plain HTML page these days. You’re an inspiration to us all.”
