Get behind me, employee of Satan!!

But seriously?

I probably wouldn’t clap for a piece that I found morally offensive.

I’d probably bail the moment I recognized where it was going and neither clap nor comment.

But otherwise? If you read to the end and have a strong emotional (or bodily) response?

Give it a courtesy clap and move on.

And maybe post a comment like “This made me vomit. Where do I send the dry cleaning bill?”
