The BUZZ with Medium marketing stars is that places like LinkedIn are REPLACING Medium as the GO-TO "BE THERE" money-making sites for 2022 so people (if they follow these schmucks, as so many brain-deads do) are flocking to them (as well as Quora, Twitter--of course--and a couple of others) if they weren't already there to cash in...if there's cash. And so you may be getting "love notes" by algorithm for that reason alone.

Follow my nose to this moron...
