I agree with you Alec, and I’ve been a clapper since Day One on Medium. If it’s within my power to offer encouragement for a good effort, something I’ve taken the time to read all the way through, I’m going to do it. The world is tough enough with little enough positive feedback for me to withhold a bit of positive reinforcement for somebody who has put time and effort into a story, then been bold enough to press the Publish button and send it out into the world. I know what Crickets feels like, and I don’t want others to feel that disappointment if they have spent time writing a genuinely worthwhile piece.
