A few things to think about 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 discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person or show off how aware I am of social issues?
βœ… Am I about to say "Are you surprised?" when someone is disappointed?



@bgcarlisle I ask myself the second one every time I interact with anyone, it's a constant source of anxiety. πŸ˜– It's a good question! I just wish I had better social intuition for knowing the right answer.


@ziggurat Usually, if you're even thinking about it, it's about a million times better than Reply Guy
