Gmail Plug-in that warns you when you write emails using words which undermine your message
Inspired by the writings of Tara Mohr and others, this Chrome Extension for Gmail and Outlook.com will warn you when you use phrases that might be undermining your message.
The Chrome Extension can be found at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/just-not-sorry-the-gmail/fmegmibednnlgojepmidhlhpjbppmlci?hl=en-US
Please create a GitHub issue with your request.
If you're a developer, you're welcome to submit a pull request. Please run the tests before submitting, as they will validate the format of the message.
NOTE: All warning phrases must include a link to an article that explains why the phrase could negatively impact someone's message. If available, please also include alternative wording suggestions from the article.
