Such a great read, and I can’t wait to read the book. It strikes me that while many of the behaviours outlined in this piece are undoubtedly prevalent in an online world, they seem to be extrapolated versions of real-world types that I’ve encountered… For me, this article could easily read “The 7 Types of Toxic People to Avoid”!

I wish I could have learned and applied many of the techniques for handling them a lot earlier in life! Thank you for your work.
