What if instead of posting items that are just lists of hashtags to get our names into search results as "interested in these topics," we could post actual comments and content about our interests, hashtag the postings, and make the search results be really about the topics rather about than the people?

...I've just realized I don't read "snowflake", "SJW" and "cuck" as insults, but instead as markers to indicate the speaker's social group. That also tend to indicate "hey, I should stop listening to anything this person is saying and maybe actively avoid them."
So when someone, in a serious way, says "You are/that person is a libtard cuck," my mental translation ends up being "I, the speaker, proudly belong to a jerkass social group and will be a pain to talk with."
