I generally try to treat people well and be as easygoing as I can, with the understanding that I can't please everyone but I can decide who to engage
I go with the "if I can't please everyone at the same time, I wonder if I can annoy everyone all at once?" approach, LOL
Seriously, yes - you learn that some people aren't worth engaging with. My OP was partly driven by that as well. Here's what happened:
I saw someone asking on Twitter something along the lines of whether she should speak to her husbands / boyfriends son and ex-wife, who were both JWs.
I suggested that just because JWs shunned people, doesn't mean we have to (simply because they are JWs). At the same time I noticed the poster whining about someone blocking her, that someone being a guy who seemed uber reasonable. I didn't know why.
Whoa, she goes off claiming that all JWs support child abuse and were bigots. I thought that was a bit OTT and suggested that wasn't the case and that it was itself bigoted to judge them all individually based on membership of a group. I also suggested that being angry was understandable but being filled with resentment wasn't a healthy way to live.
Of course, that went down well. But I know she knew she was wrong. How do I know? Because she deleted her original tweets leaving just the one of me out of context. Then starts another topic bemoaning how she'd been "counselled" by some white male ex-elder type. Not even close to what happened.
So next time, when some female exJW solicits opinions, am I more or less inclined to engage, or more likely to wonder if they are a cray-cray? That's how it works.
The other thing were tweets that LloydEvenaParody made. I honestly think they lost the plot and have gone after people who simply don't deserve it. Cappytan seems to be one of the most reasonable of people and it's totally possible to both wonder about how much criticism of Lloyd is the right amount vs too much and be supportive of those threatened with litigation. He just seems to be a decent person pondering what the right balance is. How can you turn that into something to be judgemental about?
So LloydEvensParody - I've enjoyed your parody but I think you've just diluted your criticism of Lloyd himself. Now he can look at that and say see, crazy person ... because that is what it looked like to me and I don't think I'm unique. The fact that you don't like that I "liked" someone else's reply about it that summed up the gist of what I felt is exactly the sort of thing Lloyd does. Please, take a step back and think about what you're doing and why.
My advice is to use that account for what it was created for, and not to seek out enemies that are not there or try to divide people over something that simply isn't a thing and doesn't need to be turned into a thing.
