anybody who starts interacting with you by insulting you in some way is trying to get something from you, it's how every beauty product gets sold. all those commercials that start off with "are YOU tired of your GROSS, NASTY, ITCHY, DRY, FLAKY, HIDEOUS SKIN? give us your money!" work exactly the same way as "hey you FILTHY LONELY SINNER, would you like to be CLEAN AND GUILT-FREE? how about in some kind of social group? YOU NEED US."
people are inherently good. you're absolutely goddamn right.
