Online combat

So you’ve been quoted by some big social media account with crank views, and you’re in a fight for your life :)

Who quoted?

Sample the replies. If they’re garbage, just mute / lock / block and move on.

Someone with crank views sends commenters with the same. 99.9% tedious name-calling. Substantive replies ignored. Waste of time.

Survival guide

  • If you’re funny, be funny
  • Focus on substance
  • Ignore low-effort dunks
  • Respect the good ones
  • Mute the ad hominems
  • You can snark back a little, if it’s creative or funny
  • Batch your replies on your own schedule, this is strictly for fun
