Medium is Bad. Stop Using It.

There are a number of problems with Medium and its content. Medium is very slow (compare). Medium's paywall is an insult to good journalism by forcing specific users to pay for content of often questionable quality. The Medium paywall also makes for a suboptimal user experience. When sharing a Medium article, there is a high degree of uncertainty that the person opening the link will be asked to pay money to read the content. The Medium membership model doesn't work for several folks (likely you too). But, most importantly Medium dilutes your brand and negatively impacts essential metrics.
