Feature thought:

When replying to someone, what if their profile text was pulled up and placed somewhere near the box you were typing in, to give you a better idea of who the fuck they ARE in this modern nightmare hellscape free of all signifiers of a person beyond "their choice of username and maybe an icon, if you're lucky"?

Similarly, on Tweetdeck (not on Mastodon coz it doesn't support it yet), I have my *own* post history pinned next to the "new post" column, so if I start to post a massive whine or angry rant or political whatever I get a reminder of "is this really the person I want to be on the internet?"

@anthracite

(it's immensely reassuring to look back through one's posts and reply posts and feel "yes I like this person this is a person I would be happy to be")

@Snapai @anthracite I cannot count the number of times I written something and then just closed the window.

@Kyreeth @Snapai

Been there. Mostly on Hacker News and Reddit. But I have definitely BEEN THERE.
