Why does everything you say make so much damn sense? 🙏

Ezinne,

Thanks for this comment, but I have to confess that, to me, weighing in on Backchannel about Medium was a failure. It’s a failure because I try very hard not to write about real things, except in the most deflecting, safest possible, way. The reason I’m so careful is because I want to have fun and goof around on Medium. I don’t want to get caught up in any nonsense.

You may have no interest in comic books, but Thaddeus Howze wrote a great post:

And some of the comments led to meaningful discussions, but the trolls came out, and they came out first. So, for a while, he had written this great post and the only response was just awful. The kind of comments that make me sick to my stomach because they betray such a chasm of understanding. All I could think was, “I wouldn’t even bother if I was him.”

So, I make sense because I try not to write about any controversial topics or ideas that I’m conflicted about.

You, on the other hand, write about things that matter. It’s one thing to be a soul blogger, it’s quite another to be a soul blogger with courage.

The world understands me. You have a much tougher job. As is clear from that post above, Thaddeus Howze would have to climb a mountain of explanation to get a fraction of the slack that I am granted.

Your posts make sense to me to, but even when they seem not to, I figure it is me that has to move my square, not you.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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