Trolls will be trolls, that's for sure. If mindful, one's posts need not to be controlled by them.

It would be a shame to be judged as a hate-mongerer by an impulsive, misunderstood, or out of context post. Another reason to practice patience,
delay, and serious deliberation when posting about sensitive issues.

Thank you for reaffirming that we're all in this together. The Information Age sure has elevated and enlightened the minds and consciousnesses of our
collective. However, it is a task weeding through the misinformation, disinformation, and incorrect information, a task that I occasionally fail. I

Taken as light hearted!
My brother, I object. Self-criticism, in my case, is not about groveling, rather, uncensored introspection is a key to
self-improvement, and strengthening one's shortcomings.
Both egoism and egotism can be hindrances to harmonious, peaceful coexistence.
