Thank you so very much for reading, Melissa. I've noted several writers on the platform with a similar attitude, although they are few and I appreciate the note of camaraderie. I encourage those who write that which is clearly not content to chose the word "publish" instead of "post" as well to establish a clearer mindset when working. This is a constant battle against a tide, I fear. True that the algorithm has much to do with it, but the flatness of social media as a whole and the manner in which these platforms bulldoze everything into a mechanized field of marketing out of an appeance of necessity is the true culprit. We become one, robotic mass in its grip.
