Not Always Right: 15th Anniversary Month! – The Feel Good Stories!

, , | Right | October 20, 2022

Dear readers,

As Not Always Right has grown over the years, we felt it best to hire some onion ninjas to combat the near-constant deluge of stories about entitled and selfish customers. As much as our stories can destroy hope for humanity, we felt it was a requirement to occasionally remind you that it’s not all so bad, and decent human beings can be found out there.

We started publishing these stories as their own category – Not Always Hopeless – but we soon found that feel-good and inspirational stories could be found among all our categories, and separating them out on their own defeated the purpose of offering our readers a surprise warm hug when reading those feeds. Therefore we started migrating these stories to their own tag – Inspirational – and today, that is where you can find all our positive stories to restore your faith in humanity.

As part of our fifteenth-anniversary celebrations, we’ve rounded up the fifteen top-voted and the fifteen editors’ favorites from this tag. Again… beware the onion ninjas!
