Pierre, it is frustrating not to know how to get curated. The thing is, even if you think you know the rules, and have read them repeatedly and adhered to them as best you can, there’s no guarantee it will happen. I worked on an article for ages yesterday, checking and double checking nothing was wrong. No curation though!
Your words do matter, curated or not. Good for you to have a fighting spirit! Your articles often resonate with me, and I think of your wisdom later in the day. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
