As far as I am aware, no you are not. That would be publication hopping, Heather. That is the reason for the policy in the first place. As far as I am concerned, at this point I don’t care what you do with them. Though I encourage you to contact Medium where they can tell you what the official stance is on this issue before you post them elsewhere. If you want to post them off the platform, that has always been an option open to you.
