Yes, there will be a few nonsupportive people leaving hurtful comments because they don't understand the good feeling people receive when they help others. But these undesirables can easily be unfollowed or muted.
If you are a writer at any stage in your journey, I would suggest checking into this community and joining in this enlightened movement.
We are currently in #IndieApril and focusing on buying, reading, and reviewing the many authors out in the writing world who have gone the self-published route.
I can say from experience, #IndieApril has helped me meet scores of those gazillion wonderful, funny, and insightful people who write, draw, game, and in general create art.
I will give this warning - GIF's are addictive.
