Medium is a mess

Apparently, +Medium’s smart algorithms on what I should be reading next suggest that I should read my own posts. Seriously?

In the screenshot, you can also witness the fresh Responses idiocy, which are supposed to be full-blown, long-text articles, but everybody (myself included) is using as an old-school comments form, disregarding the initial, actually-well-thought, feature of side-bar “Notes” (which are now by-default private and have to be approved to be public). So on a user profile (or on the “reading list”) you have simple comments have the same weight and appearance as your actual posts.

Meanwhile, #Medium is heralded as a great example of fresh web design, UI, UX and all that… :)
