You know I thought about that. I noticed an uptick of racist comments on my essays prior to November 2018, but after that they kind of died down. That’s a very good point and I thought about the possibility of Russian trolls attempting to lure sympathizers to her cause. I am very surprised at Medium’s lack of awareness of trolls. I suspect they’ll never do anything if we don’t make a stink about it. We pay for our membership for real engagement.
Thanks for the troll tip. I left Facebook for that very reason. I’m going to keep my eyes open and I’m going to try my best to remain vigilant against racist spam this election season.
We can’t catch a break!
