What I didn’t know is that Medium has a policy against crowdfunding. I guess it’s in the user agreement. I haven’t checked. Anyway, Medium legal is now on it because that’s a violation of the platform.
That ignorance to 60 in under a minute is what tipped me off, too, Caleb Ramsby.

I just read through the terms, and the rules, and even the guidelines for law enforcement, and I can’t see anything prohibiting crowdfunding.

The rules do, however, prohibit ‘phishing and fraud’ and ‘deceptive impersonation’. They specify, ‘Don’t use deception to generate revenue or traffic.’ They also

reserve the right to suspend accounts or remove content, without notice, for any reason, particularly to protect our services, infrastructure, users, or community.

If I’ve just not read something properly, can someone point it out to me where I’ve gone wrong?
