Some of my best stories are my responses! Too bad I can’t get paid writing responses.
Stories and responses being the same weight is monumentally stupid. It’s one of those things that a developer thought up in a bubble that had split away from the pack, aided by exit money and hubris. Even the archive download doesn’t separate and that makes it hard to parse.
Again, bone-stupid. Like Medium developers don’t use their own product and there are no typical users at Medium who even try to think like their writers.
Like they are trying to reshape the world of writing in their own image, as if they believe they are the gods.
