Medium Shoots…it misses!

Ooooh, look a shiny new feature on Medium!

“Writers you might like”

This concept, it’s a great concept. It’s fantastic. Medium has the best concepts.

(*cough*Sorry for the bad Trump impersonation there, it’s been a weird day.)

Awww, Medium, I’m so flattered you’d think of me. Really I am. But your picks, they’re way too random. This is the first suggested writer I might like:

A city church? In New Orleans? The only remote connection I might have to New Orleans, is that I appreciate the blues. And I’m an Atheist. I really don’t want to follow anyone profile whose top stories titles start with “Jesus”. I’m sure there’s people here who want to read about Jesus, I’m not one of them. I don’t follow the religion tag. I’ve written maybe two stories in 1137 that had anything to do with religion. So um, why am I getting this profile? Or is this not something I, particularly, might like, but simply profiles that could use a little exposure? If so, that’s still a great concept. But then don’t pretend these were hand picked for me.

This can be so great though! A for effort. Okay, A- for effort. Keep em coming. Actually, instead of only a ‘follow’ button, can we get a “Nope, try again” button? I’m sure it’s valuable information to whomever wrote this little gem to know how far they were off.
