Why This Platform Does Not Matter

From Obama to productivity promises to fashionable doomsayers, it’s all just a boys club of business folk.

Do you know Jessica Wildfire? She was one of the top writers on Medium and slang some hard truths. The CEO of this platform labeled her a “doomsayer” and said that she was an example of the type of hyped-up content that Medium needs to move away from. Now she is primarily writing on Substack. Do you know Isaiah McCall? He’s a self-proclaimed comedian and crypto investor who wrote a book predicting that Crypto is the future of basically everything. Isaiah wrote several articles claiming that the world overreacted to Covid-19, and one of his latest predicts the utter collapse of five nations, one of which is Belgium. The CEO of this platform, Tony Stubblebine, let Isaiah interview him, during which they suckled on each other's amazing talents and accomplishments. Isaiah is killing it on Medium.

Does that sound fair?

Of course not.

Remember me? I was once publishing anti-crypto articles that were based on fact, and that over time proved to be true. Those articles were read by the thousands, or sometimes tens of thousands. The CEO of this platform shadow-banned me because I said he was bad at his job and challenged the course he took.
