Hey Julia,

You’re right, most people don’t want to name names. The stakes are too high. Personally I won’t publicly accuse anyone of anything unless and until I have absolute confirmation. Like an IP address that is used by two supposed different identities. Or screenshots of Twitter conversations. Both of which were involved in the incidents I alluded to.

Yes, I do have some ideas, and I can say that there are active conversations occurring around this, but it is a hugely difficult issue. It would certainly help if Medium could be a little more responsive than the pat answer of “will respond to illegal activity only” to issues of deception.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
