Thing that I recommend:

✨ Un-following ✨

Are their jokes just a little off?

Do they make you feel not good? In any way?

Are you angry, or does it trigger your "I need to argue with this person" reflex?

Then maybe:

✨ Un-following ✨

Is for you

Follow

You can also do this for the "big" fedi accounts

If you don't see the latest toilet humour or whatever from them

Nothing bad happens

There will not be a test

You don't owe them your attention

@bgcarlisle yeah people need to lose the idea that unfollowing/muting/blocking someone is some kind of punishment they're doling out. It's not about punishing people, it's about taking care of yourself.
