I opened up Medium this morning and shut it down. I didn’t have the pre-caffeine focus to deal with the graphically and structurally denuded presentation I found. I thought something might have gone wrong in the system and hoped it would be fixed if I turned my attention to other things and waited it out.

I concur with all your points.

Weirdly, my Android version is still leading with people I follow and their recommendations, which is what I want and thought I was paying for.

Quite frankly, I don’t give a rat’s ass about most of the pieces that appear in the Members Only category, which now dominates my feed.

Sorry, Medium , skimping on what I’m here for to flog what you want me to click on is not a way to encourage my continued subscription.

Like what you read? Give Meg a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
