Medium Humor

This Isn’t Funny

(originally posted at 8:10AM CST)

I captured this screenshot of Medium’s header tabs on March 26 -

I was thrilled to see a new tab added since then. I’m not sure when it came to be. I just noticed it today -

I clicked. I scrolled. I scrolled some more.

I became upset.

I signed out of Medium and checked again as a guest. As I thought, a writer I blocked for obvious reasons appeared multiple times throughout the reading list.

I discovered the curators of these stories had an alternate theme -

I was relieved. Obviously, the person charged with selecting a proper category pinned Humor as a temporary placeholder and went home after a long day of work. After a good night’s sleep, I’m sure this person will return bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to complete the job s/he started.

That’s the only explanation.



Let’s wake up now.


(UPDATE: 11:01AM)

The Humor tab is gone!

I knew it!

Thank you, Medium.


if you can just manage to bring it back with really good, knee-slappin’, rib-ticklin’, nose-snortin’, non-politickin’ humor …

well that would be just dandy!
