For me, it's not an automatic disqualification if the effort you spend composing your message is equivalent to the same amount of effort you spend blinking. However, if that's the case, I expect you to have a pretty impressive profile to compensate. Because seriously, when was the last time you laughed from reading a generic "hey" or "hey what's up" message?
