Hamlet, I've seen you post and tweet about social distancing enough to feel safe in the assumption that you're as concerned by the "liberate" movement as most of us are. Encouraging people to use a hashtag that, to the millions of social media users who don't read this blog, is going to sound (and look, if it's pictures of characters grouped together) like it's anti-social-distancing is terribly counter-productive.

That's a very good point, thank you! I've changed the hashtag (with additional advice from Cajsa) to "#NoAvatarSocialDistance" and tweaked the title to make sure no one misunderstands. (Hopefully.)
