Dear, Sweet Medium…

There is only one person and one publication I do not want to read on Medium. I follow neither. And yet my feed contained 15 or 20 of their pieces today. Algorithm hiccup? Propaganda? Punishment?

And about that feed. I used to be able to scroll back through it indefinitely. Suddenly, it limits how far back I can go. A new feature. Or just an unsubtle way of driving people to your new homepage?

I paid the $5, but it seems less worth it it ever day. I think you are at $2.83 today, and slipping.

Like what you read? Give Mike Essig a round of applause.

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