You hit the mark with your wisdom, Alison Tennent. What is the point of bitching, throwing mud, and creating unnecessary drama in a peaceful content platform? As a writer, I focus on my writing and don't waste my precious time by sticking my nose to the business of other publications. If a publication does not resonate with me, I simply don't contribute to it. It is this simple. There are thousands of publications on Medium, and they have their goals. I respect all of them. My publication is open to any writer who follows Medium rules. They have the option to stay or leave anytime. It is the choice of the writer that matters. It is a pleasure for me to support writers who want to raise their voice. That's the reasons over 4,300 writers contribute to my publication. Each of them is unique and valuable to me. They have full freedom to write for any publication and remove their stories anytime to build their own publications. My goal is the success of writers, and my publication supports this goal transparently.
