Words ARE powerful, and that's one reason I've loved it here on Medium. Writers seem to be more aware of the effects of their words than non-writers, IMHO, and I think that's one reason it's so much more pleasant here than on other social media platforms. I feel safer here, for starters. I'm sorry you lost a follower though! It wasn't me! :D
