Social Media As Education
I was talking about the fact that when people trigger my instinctive “what am I dealing with here?” on social media a few times, I will cut and paste their most provocative comments, the ones that I think they will later deny, into an alphabetized file. Takes me about 120 seconds a day to do this, and it’s paid off beautifully.
One way is through filtering people according the Three Gates: are they honest? Kind? Is their perspective Useful (informed and of practical value in the discussion at hand)? Do they try to gaslight you?
