During an interaction online today, someone told me, “I’m really not interested in you responding to me.  I most likely won’t read it, so go ahead and save your time.”  In this case, there is really only one way I can respond:

Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you; reprove a wise man, and he will love you (Proverbs 9:8).

If you are the scoffer: Repent.  Be humble.  Be wise.  Don’t be puffed-up and foolish.  And if you are on the receiving end of such folly: Be discerning, knowing that reproof and correction will not always be helpful and sometimes, will even be counterproductive (see also Matt 7:6).
