…pace, doing whatever the heck I want to do, with no pretensions to or concern for “Medium success.” Anybody who is taking Medium more seriously than that is setting themselves up for heartbreak. IMHO.

I think that is why I keep tilting at Medium’s windmills. I’ve read the comments of hundreds of desperate people who hope to change their lives by following the literal write-by-the-numbers listicles of content marketers who feed off the subscriptions of the people they lie to.
When Medium didn’t pay anything, I mocked the social media tycoons because of the terrible quality of their writing.
Now, it feels like a criminal offense, no different from any for-profit educational scam.
