Jim, I am just now catching up on this and agree with you 100%, of course.

With that said, I am not surprised it was published on Illumination. I was once a writer there and the publication became more and more like Medium's answer to Amway. It's creepy as hell. Dr. Whoever makes my skin crawl. The publication is like a Ponzi scheme and I am shocked at the respectable writers that are involved as contributors or editors.

I doubt seriously if the "doctor" will do anything about it. Medium needs to take control.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
