Are people that stupid or am I just a jerk?

I belong to several Medium-related Facebook groups. They’re a great way to share your work, as well as interact with the community.

Recently, I’ve noticed an increase in a certain type of behavior — ignorant — that really bugs me. And that’s when writers post their story links in the “comments” section of my posts.

Your shitty story is not a comment, mmmmk?

Now, I’ve seen where writers actually ask group members to drop their links but not me. I want my comments to be just that. You respect me, I respect you.
