But the trend is for good reason, because populism is a bad idea. While the rest of the world is seeking fairness and equity in AI, you are handing Medium over to an oligarchy of zealous optimists and productivity hacks who promote inane ideas. I don't believe you will read this, because it seems you have muted me after hiding my criticism of you and Boost from your first article about it; for those who might actually be seeing this, this is propaganda. Under Mr. Stubblevine this platform has left hundreds, if not thousands, of its core writers in the cold, the very same writers who helped build it in the first place. He claims that Medium is bucking Silicon Valley trends, while at the same time he is handing this platform over to an exclusive club of "verified authors" and tech professionals. Writers on this platform with thousands of followers get dozens of views now, and quality writing has left the building.
I'm just hoping for another shake up that restores the former glory.
