I agree that being included in the fifty top writers in your topic areas is a good thing. It is, however, a bit of a surprise and our world is such that I immediately suspected a marketing ploy. Then I was upset that I was suspicious. Damn, can’t even take a compliment anymore. Looking for the hook. In the end I decided to be impressed even more with where Medium is going and happy that I seem to be included. Being included for some reason other than money is a very nice thing . . .
