Boost but add a cw.
@ajdunevent That's intentionally not a feature, because it can be used like on Twitter where people share things they don't like with their bubble and include a snarky/hateful comment that appeals to their followers. For example, I could add a CW "stupid idea" to your toot and thereby invite my hundred million followers to harass you. Since Mastodon doesn't have that feature, the best option I have is to write a comment addressed to you, which is probably nicer anyway. :)
