It’s actually projection ( I’m going to tell you that you are doing what I am actually doing, and hopefully because you are a better person than I am, i.e. you give a shit about how you affect people, you will sacrifice your position and allow me to continue with the behavior).

For me, it’s almost worse than gaslighting.

Never mind they’re both shit.

Projection is tool number one of trolls. Don’t you always feel like, SERIOUSLY??? HAVE YOU LOOKED IN A MIRROR LATELY??

I think gaslighting is sorta a long term abuse tactic so it isn’t as easy to pull that one on strangers.

I wasn’t trying to correct you I just have things projected onto me A LOT. ☹

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
