“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

"Congrats" and "Best" are the wind-up sign offs of our age

Whether or not you mean to insult people, your abbreviation automates the insult for you. It implies you can't even be bothered to press the keys to complete the word or phrase.

Being kind means saying "Congratulations" or "With best wishes."
