My Latest Story About Medium Got Me Kicked Off A Publication I Love
Shannon Ashley

I’ve conflicting feelings about this.

I’m usually contrary to banning, blocking, cutting out, and similar. On the contrary, I’d wish there was more room to different perspectives and even confrontation on Medium. So, I’m sad about what happened.

But I also see a form of “censorship” from the community to critic voices. Not your case, but when I read articles about “negativity” I cannot avoid thinking about this kind of pillory. People want to be inspired, I get it. But the rampant optimism on Medium is also overwhelming the few critic voices here. Truth is that reality is often much different than the happy island.

I’d just wish to see all voices welcome, or respectfully criticized.
