Twitter block message


There’s been a change in the way I use Twitter.

In the past, I was happy to argue with people who called me a cuck, a mangina, a spittle-flecked piece of scum or whatever else, but it’s become rather dull. Very dull, in fact, and your approach which may, perhaps, combine rage, sloppy thinking, bad spelling, inept punctuation, racism, xenophobia or other silliness, suggest that this is a place we’re either already at or going to arrive at very soon.

To spare you the effort of arguing with someone you’ll never beat into submission and to avoid any further unpleasantness, therefore, I’m blocking you. ‘But your Twitter will become no more than an echo chamber,’ you say, to which I reply that this is somewhere I visit for fun and I don’t want to spend more time wading through cheap and squalid hatred than I absolutely have to.

May your life bless you abundantly and all the rest, but I’m afraid my brief part in it is very much over. Have a lovely morning/afternoon/evening/night (delete as applicable) and let’s never, ever speak again.

Lots of love,

The Rabbit
