I agree that every time somebody claps without reading its a missed opportunity. Plus, clapping without reading just seems wrong to me. But whether 50 claps from a person who hasn’t read your post is the equivalent of 50 claps from somebody who has? i have yet to find anyone who knows the answer to this. (I’m hoping that when the Curators take a look at this essay — which I doubt they’ll curate — one of them might slip me a private note that answers it.) (Or even post the answer in the Comments.)
