Currently addressing in my own head the question of whether unfollowing acquaintances that I haven’t seen for years, and who have started using the word “woke” in an accusatory fashion, is a good idea, or putting myself in an echo chamber. Might be both. But I’m coming down on good idea because life’s too short to listen to people who are bellends.

@sil I understand the dilemma. If you can't justify it under 'self care', consider also 'time management'. ;-)

@sil I agree with you. Also it is important to remove credibility from folks who view empathy as a weakness, and number of followers contributes to credibility.

Though, I hate the word "woke" when used on both sides of the political spectrum. Implies understanding others is a destination not a journey.

@sil I find some things are good social filters, and it's better to use them.
