More on this later, but if you want to work yourself into an unholy rage and unleash the vitriol pooling in your febrile mind, please keep in mind one of the most basic guidelines according to which Twitter convention operates: an RT *does not* constitute an endorsement! By all means criticize in whatever terms you deem appropriate the author of the Tweet(s) you find objectionable, but don’t shoot the messenger. It makes you seem petty and, in your indiscriminate haste to condemn, transforms your possibly quite valid opinion into a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, and yes, signifying nothing. 

Long story short, try thinking before telling the messenger to “fuck off.” Actually, just try thinking; it isn’t as scary as it sounds.
