In my just-over-two-years on Medium, I’ve received my fair share of goofy and/or insulting comments on my stories. Certainly, many of you can relate. Some leave you shaking your head, while others are infuriating. And then there are those “bon mots” which actually incite pity for the commentators.




A publication featuring quality stories from the best writers on Medium. Whether it be an essay, poem, op-ed piece, satire, or another genre, if it’s not great, you won’t find it here.
