Further, she added that people should refrain from spamming and sending forwards. She asked that people don’t tag her in irrelevant, unrelated, and unsolicited stories or posts, saying that it’s an annoying habit that doesn’t do any favours.
She also mentioned that people don’t engage in inane and heated arguments on her page, stating that such people could come across as utter fools when they do so.
She asked that people quote her truly without twisting hers, as she had noticed online portals that don’t even copy and paste her captions correctly.
Zeenat Aman continued, saying that while she did welcome different opinions, personal stories, respectful comments, and questions, she stated that she didn’t have the patience for trolls. She said she wouldn’t mind blocking such people. She wrote that she understood that many people struggle with social media, as the internet can be a venomous, controversial, and obsessive space.
She concluded by saying that she doesn’t wish to venture down that path or send people there. Hence, she asked that people adhere to her commandments so that everyone could be happy together. stating that was the end of today’s lunchtime lecture, she asked people to comment on the online hygiene and etiquette tips they follow.
