Good analysis, really enjoyed the read. Two things:

  1. I think in the short term you may be misinterpreting the 50 clap representation. There are a *lot* of efforts right now for people to effectively break/game the new system, and I’d argue it’s hard to say we are at a stable enough stage in the platform to learn from it.
  2. I’d argue the biggest reason for dropoffs after the first 5–6 claps is the incredibly tedious nature of clapping, and how it basically forces the user into an unnatural behavior pattern/game theory.
