When someone friends me it seems good manners to send them a brief message of welcome. Nothing elaborate, just acknowledgement. One of my pet-peeves is if the person just ignores responding. It seems so uncivil, even passive-aggressive. I’m rather hard-assed about the issue & if the person never responds, I just delete them. It’s my unreasonable side.
So when a young man from Kashmir friended me & ignored my message, I sent him a brief note of objection. Nothing snotty, just slightly peeved. He responded by saying sorry but he got a head injury today & received six stitches from a clash with Indian troops.
Color me stupid.
Get well Abid Bhat.
