I kind of like the clap philosophy more than I like hearts. That said, I dislike the fact that you can’t slow hand clap an article you really hate. Here’s hoping Medium add Boos or Hisses to balance the scale.
I provided you 7 claps for this article for no specific reason.
I provided your comment writers;
- Vico Biscotti, enough claps to take his tally to 13.
- Karen Booth, enough claps to take her tally to 13.
- Laurie Fellezs 4 claps to mirror her musing about 4 claps.
And yes, I prefer comments more than claps. I think most people do because it shows that they actually read the article rather than pressing the clap button by accident. A clap in any order tells you nothing, a comment can tell you everything.
I have only issued one 10 clap to one article so far.
