All hail the one sided conversation

In summary, a one sided conversation is when one person dominates the conversation while the other person listens or doesn't actively participate. People engage in one sided conversations for various reasons, such as trying to dominate or lack of interest in the other person's perspective. This can negatively affect relationships by making the other person feel unheard and creating a power imbalance. To avoid one sided conversations, actively listening, asking open-ended questions, and being aware of dominant speaking tendencies are helpful. While it is possible to have a productive one sided conversation, it is important for the speaker to be aware of the other person's needs and engage in active listening to ensure the conversation is beneficial for both parties.

Reports are not conversations and cannot replace them either. If you want to discuss the removal of the posts, send a direct message.
