This clapping this is fucking with my OCD.

So just a heads up that the number of claps I give has more to do with that than anything else. My brain has always likes multiples of 3 and the number 7; it especially dislikes the number 5. So I generally “clap” in threes, but will add or subtract claps to avoid fives.

I miss the simplicity of “heart or don’t heart” already. Not least because I really fucking wish I knew how to UN-“clap” shit that I accidentally “clapped” with my thumb while scrolling. 😅

Also, did anyone else snicker when they found out Medium has the “clap” now, ‘cause bad syphilis pun? Or was that just me? Yeah…probably just me.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
