Tom Kuegler, I think you’re right about a lot here. I think Medium has tested the opening of member pieces to pubs for the first three months and made some changes as a result.

My conversations with them have been helpful and we’re looking to talk again.

I think they’ve made changes based upon how writers are using the new capabilities, and perhaps misusing, and overusing them. A quarter is a decent period of time to gauge how writers will use these capabilities.

I have the answer to the question we’ve been testing too.

Honestly, I think writers are hurting themselves in their overzealousness and they can’t see what they’re doing.

I think I’ll write a response piece.

Hopeful we can talk again before you leave.
