If I've learned anything from having a five digit follower count since I was like 18 it is that there are certain types of people who desperately, painfully desire interaction from anyone at all, at any cost, even if it's antagonistic, and it is your job to not give them that satisfaction. They will say ludicrous shit to you, praying that you will respond and that the ensuing notes your posts get will make them finally feel Seen in some way even if it's via a bunch of people yelling at them.
Do not get me wrong, not everyone is like this, especially on a site like this where people can be quite authentically unpleasant, but there is a certain je ne sais quoi about the ones who are salivating for your attention specifically. Do not give them that satisfaction. Let them refresh your page for hours before giving up. You cannot give them that satisfaction do you hear me [grabs you by the face] YOU CAN'T GIVE IT TO THEM
