It’s just giving you a better word. It’s not, definitely not giving you the “Best Word”!
If I'm not wanting to chat, I don't send any words, just a smiley face. . . . Or bored face, or sleepy face. Just don't reply with ANY words at all, and they'll usually get the message, I've found. Sometimes players just feel the need to say something, and to me, well, that's okay too. I just "listen"' and keep on playing.
