Agreed. We've got a good thing going here. To be clear, I do hear and recognize the complaints. I suppose if I'd witnessed things being massively different I'd be more up in arms about it all.
I just wanted to point out what Medium does do for us (free platform, super friendly community, excellent writing all over the place), and try focusing on the positive here. Since there's still a ton to be grateful for…and I'm not even talking about elephants. ;)
