@starwall species are about as set-in-stone and sensical as mutual follower relationships
over the course of my technical work it has become clear to me that the distinction between technical and social skill is false. programs are tools to be used by other humans. if you know your way around code but people find you a pain to work with then you are useless. technical skill _proceeds_ from communication skill.

Before jumping into someone else's mentions:
✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ 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?
✅ Am I saying "Are you surprised?" when they're disappointed?
✅ Am I providing unsolicited advice?
I mostly lurk. Sometimes I toot into the void.
