Yup. To which I'd add: don't Follow me if you aren't planning on reading my crap. I'm not going to follow back

If I DO follow you out of the blue, the same plea applies: do not follow me back to "return the favor". Only do so if you want to read my crap. My wanting to read you does not imply that you like what I write and vice-versa.

And for me, people can go ahead and leave a comment with condescending advice, right wing babble, religious babble, conspiracy babble etc. I'm happy to know who you are so that I can mute and block

Ohh, tag blankets are another way to get muted and blocked.
