Discussion on: Judging from a profile picture

I always appreciate avatars in social media, it's some of the closest to character you can get that's projected beyond their diction. Depending on the avatar you can tell if someone is a troll or not, or what interests they have.

Like I see your avatar, and I know you probably like quality anime, and you might be fellow weeb (believe it) 🤘

It helps when someone has a very specific avatar of imagery that represents a group that I don't want to interact with, or I know I'll have more friction communicating with. It also helps to diminish the power of their message if they decide to spew negativity.
