Thanks for this Linda. I have private notes and some trolling about a blog I posted that gained traction and you’d have thought I said we should all worship Hitler and require blood sacrifice. It’s amazing what people can infer from your life in less than 1,500 words and think they have a right to just blow you up. While Medium is a fantastic platform and most people write considerate, but critical responses worth discussing, as it’s grown, the trolls seem to be coming out. It’s unfortunate that the shy here on medium will be absolutely destroyed by comments should their work ever get featured, which has the potential to stunt their creativity and beauty. I just wish we weren’t all so foul to one another these days….
