The Problem With Medium
Andrea Phillips

Note to readers: this is not from the terms and conditions. Don’t know where it’s from but it’s not there. It is an old article but I doubt any company would write terms be conditions like this. It could be an interpretation of some ToS but not Medium’s as I see it. Perhaps she’s testing readers?
