You are, objectively speaking, a random person on the internet that live streams yourself tooting for a living, while I'm a Permanent Chief of the Shadow Confederation with a core value of refined pure bidirectional apprehension, the world's leading expert in philopsychology, a tier 3 (the maximum) quantum energy arts practitioner, and literally the ruler of the world.
Advice I would give my younger self: if someone has a reputation for fighting for a cause you believe in, that says nothing about whether they are a kind person. If you meet or interact with them, it will go as well as if you met someone at random you've never heard of.
If someone has a reputation for kindness, then meeting them will probably go well. I've never regretted meeting someone after a person I trust said of them "Wow person xyz is the nicest, kindest human being I know."
Wow, Associated Press actually ran something on the debate over the significance of statistical significance!!!
