This was brilliant. Thank you. I’ve only done nine articles so far. The last one was the first one curated but at least one or two of the previous eight received the ‘high volume’ message. I had no idea it wasn’t literally true and that ‘curation jail’ wasn’t just a figment of the writer imagination!
I too was skeptical about this, which is why I held off on writing this article but I am thoroughly convinced that there is some mechanism disqualifying writers from curation review (medium jail is probably a bit of an extreme term) but the concept that writers are being flagged and not reviewed is very real.
