nevermind. i think i get it. there are only a handful of you opposed to tells. and you decided to say something after arming yourself with the "it's spam!" argument. which is why you didn't want me to repeat. repeating means you dig deeper and doing so would mean you leave the "it's spam!" for "i find it really annoying and terribly inconsiderate". which would bring us to me not 'tell'ing you instead of your goal of me not 'tell'ing anyone.
