I love some thoughts I just read by @garciabuxton on her welcome page:

No obsessions with usability or marketability or monetizing. No ads or affiliate links. No β€œlikes” or lists of β€œfollowers.” Just me and my online sandbox, where I can dabble in content that I own.

After being dismissive and leaving several people feeling hurt and marginalized, one might have considered the value of a simple apology (or at least, a touch of sensitivity) instead of exiting the conversation with more hurtful words and moving on as if it never happened, imho.
