Hi there. I’m writing this post because I seem to be having more and more of a certain type of interaction on twitter, and I’m getting tired of writing the same thing over and over again.
If I have tweeted this link to you, it’s because you are exhibiting what I consider to be trolling behaviour. You are someone who has tweeted at me, unsolicited, with the clear intention of, at best, starting an argument. Perhaps you’ve replied to a tweet of mine that was retweeted into your timeline by somebody else, or maybe I tweeted about a subject you were searching twitter for. Maybe you found me some other way. The point is, you came to me, and you came looking for a fight.
I am not going to fight with you. Because the fact is, I consider you to be unwell. The behaviour you are exhibiting- starting fights with strangers in public- is deeply unhealthy, and if you did it offline, no one would hesitate to ask you to seek psychiatric help. Just because you’re doing it on a computer or on a phone doesn’t make it any different.
Please, if I have tweeted this at you, I strongly urge you to consider talking to your doctor. You don’t have to live like this. Whatever it is that makes you feel like you need to attack people you don’t know, that doesn’t need to go on. There are other ways to deal with it.
There are people who can help you. Please let them.
Finally, I have to tell you that if you tweet at me again, I will block you and report you without responding.
Goodbye, and good luck.

What are your headcanons about me?
This sounds really fucking awesome.
Guys make headcanons about me.
I DARE YOU WRITE HEADCANONS ABOUT ME
Yeah, go on.
I’ll admit, I’m partly reblogging this just because I love the term “headcanon”. It sounds like a Jack Kirby character.
