Writing Response is an area where Medium shines
I like the ecosystem of comments and responses in Medium. In the Medium ecosystem, comments belong to a person. Comments are a person’s own reflection, thus indeed one’s own post. That sense of ownership makes one conscious while writing comments. This is a good strategy against inane comments and trolls. In turn, this reduces spams, context-free, and content-free comments.
Responses in Medium are a way of spreading posts. In a way, they are equal to “hearting a post” (:3). This strategy puts the trolls at unease as they end up spreading the posts they are trolling.
It’d help of course, if we were to see a neat trail of responses. This is a space to watch in Medium, I suppose.
