Comments blocked on some Medium articles?

I am a paid subscriber. Understand that I pay for a subscription so that I can engage with people across the political spectrum through intelligent conversations. Conversations which challenge all of us to find a path forward.

I do not pay for Medium to allow any writer or publication to turn off the comment threads.

If I wanted to read unchallenged editorializing, I would skip the subscription and choose from dozens of publications which follow that model.

Medium has never been for passive consumers of news, and I am sorely disappointed to find unchallenged partisan B.S. showing up in my Medium feed.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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