Thank you for your feedback. I used to write Medium articles for publications (e.g. this one). For some publications, the guideline was to use bold at least once every paragraph.
When a friend of mine (LW reader) read one of those articles, he gently commented that he felt he was reading buzzfeed (overly distracting formatting).
That’s why I tried to switch to undeline/italic in my writing (besides, I have a general feeling of simplicity/minimalism here).
Will edit this post with a better formatting soon (cf. Elo’s google doc below)
EDIT: just realized there was only bold and italic in Medium, no underline...
