Reasons why I mute or unfollow people on social media:

  • Excessive political zeal.
  • Excessive self-promotion.
  • Excessive promotion of offspring cuteness and/or genius.

I have been guilty of all of these things at one point or another, particularly the excessive promotion of offspring. As it increasingly annoys me elsewhere, and I am generally annoyed with excessive social media usage these days, I am especially conscious of all of these tendencies in myself and try to avoid them.

God forgive me for straying in these respects online. I have enough problems with the sin of pride without broadcasting them on the Internet.
