I have a knee-jerk reaction that never fails to produce truth: I
automatically delete any post or ignore and article that tells me in
advance what my  reaction must be. Also, a lifetime of reading freshman
themes failed to inure me to such banal cliches as "knee-jerk reaction."
I shut them out.

Thanks Claudia for the useful account.
