It’s great that you’re amateur and sort of altruist, and Medium would of course like you for your attitude. But it’s an old mindset and you show a certain amount of naivete.
Why don’t you take into consideration that Medium is not into philanthropy but in serious business? It’s using us all for its content and is on its way to making big money.
Is it fair that they, being the winner, would take all and we, the losers, would twiddle our fingers?
Sorry if it hurts you.
