Don't Be Afraid to Mute and Block

While people are entitled to free speech there is no guarantee for them to be heard. I have been more liberal in my use of the block and mute buttons on social media and I think my life is better for it. It isn't being a snowflake or needing a safe space it is just I don't want to give oxygen to trolls and conspiracy theorists.

When you share something even to mock it or reply back to attack you are increasing the chances of the algorithm making that more popular. Why give them the satisfaction. If someone doesn't have something of value to say better of just blocking and muting and not even giving them the recognition.

You'll only receive email when they publish something new.
