I am not on Twitter and never will be. I rarely visit Facebook except to check in on my Medium groups there or to check out local events.
Here on Medium, I am always able to find my favorite writers and follow their works. In fact, more works than I am able to read!
As far as trolls, I’ve only been plagued by 4 here — blocked all but one who was polite in spite of being argumentative. He still comments occasionally but he seems to be seeing my point of view more and more!
Sometimes, I get comments from outside my tribe that leave me scratching my head — not sure what was implied or meant. I just ignore those.
I find Medium to be a creative, interesting, and welcoming place. I meet many more rude and obnoxious people in real life than I do here.
