Oh, it’s quite all right. I haven’t figured out how to read private messages in any case.
I get email notifications for them and if they fit inside the email then all is good.
But if I click the button to reply or to read the private message on Medium, the only thing that happens is that I’m taken to the story where the message was left.
I don’t have the foggiest idea what I’m supposed to do at that point.
So all worked out for the best. :-)
