Before jumping into someone else's mentions:

βœ… Am I being contrarian?
βœ… Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
βœ… Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
βœ… Am I derailing another legitimate discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person in my knowledge of social issues?
βœ… Am I saying "Are you surprised?" when they're disappointed?
βœ… Am I providing unsolicited advice?




I only reply to people if I can help them out by explaining a fact I just learned from the very first google result about the thing they've been talking about all afternoon.
