Hey everyone, @david_lee1 built this awesome tool to condition himself as well as others to rejection. YC applications were due last week so David decided to start with a rejection email from YC. 🎉

Big thanks @jonathanzwhite for the hunt!' I initially built this tool to send me a daily rejection email from every job that I applied to to condition myself to getting rejected. I figured that other people might find this tool valuable, and settled on YC since apps were due last week. Read more about Rejection Conditioner on TechCrunch: https://techcrunch.com/2017/10/0...

Love it @david_lee1 & @jonathanzwhite! As you mentioned, it would be cool if you could customize it to be a rejection from other sources -- potential employers, publishers, colleges, etc. I could see people using it to condition themselves if they could enter a situation and get daily (or random!) rejection letters to fit their situation.

@jeff_osborn Thanks for the props! Generalizing this for other use cases is high up on my list of priorities :)
