Good article man, brave. Love the picture also, says a lot. I agree with you that this platform is in decline, but I don’t agree in a pay cap, because I think it’s too late. Medium is, unfortunately, going the way of America. Garbage reigns, subjectivity rules, profits over integrity, intolerance of social inequality but embrace income inequality… for liberal woke people. Those who use the correct pronouns, they may prosper, everyone else must be cut out. There will be a backlash against this stuff soon enough I’m sure, as the Empire always strikes back, and unfortunately, I think that’s when Medium will end up in the crosshairs. The “good” news? A replacement will come, because there is money to be made.
