Was this a necessary comment? Violet DeTorres has been very open about her experiences and trials on Medium and admitted her earlier comments were sometimes too blunt or adversarial. Her profile reincarnations show her strong desire to keep writing and learning. As far as I can tell, she has been honest and forthcoming about all of this. Aren’t we all here to learn from one another, to grow as people and writers? Whether one agrees with Violet DeTorres or not, she is an active, passionate voice on this forum and deserves our respect for her willingness to adapt to the Medium environment and to stay involved in this community. She is an avid researcher who presents interesting and informative pieces. One need not agree with her to appreciate her passion and commitment to free speech.
