I look at it more as “what’s our alternative”?
I have probably 30,000 Disqus posts over the last decade. Ultimately, commenting on articles sucks, and because of the trolls you end up throwing rhetorical bombs all the time. Not productive.
Moving over to Medium was a godsend. Yes, there are way too many moonbats, but……..at least you can write an article with substance, and IN GENERAL, the number of people who have thrown rhetorical grenades my way is relatively small, even though we may disagree.
