I hate that I *can’t* login with a password, and the only other alternatives are third-parties I’d rather not bloody hell give default social network deference to. *No third party network* should have default deference if we want to keep up the spirit of a decentralized network on this here internet thingie. Think about that. Medium is saying by policy: we will make it harder for you to use our network if you do not also use one or both of these other networks. *Boooo!* to that!
As such, for my preferences, I have to *use a password* for my email to get a link to log in.
