Microaggressors. You can't live with them, you can't cut them up into
tiny pieces, put them in a trash bag, throw them in the trunk, drive
them down to the river at night and throw them in.
But you can measure their
microaggressions with linguistic analysis
software. And you can give public figures and social media contacts
scores based on this measurement, And you can build into your
system the capability to display contacts more or less prominently
based on this score. And you can measure the improvement in
overall mental health that implementing a system like this would
have on users.
This system would be like the capability on Facebook to hear less
from a person, but you could just highlight phrases that bother you
and then hear less from anyone who uses that phrase.

||There's something to be said for cutting people out who habitually offend, but more can be said for cutting people out who are habitually offended. The habitually offended have everyone walking on eggshells, and walking on eggshells is a symptom of emotional or psychological abuse. Previously limited to individual relationships with Narcissistic and Borderline Personality Disorders, where the victim is generally Codependent and equally guilty in getting people to walk on eggshells, walking on eggshells has become a cultural phenomenon. I surprised so few talk about it in this context.
