I would like to add my thanks for going into this in some detail. I was meaning to take a look at SF Ali’s complaint as I enjoyed some of his things and didn’t understand what had happened. Having gone through the comments I took a closer look at the followers that I have been picking up lately, mostly for being politically provocative, but some could be bot instances. Yes, having been around a while, I’m surprised and pleased at how well Medium has matured. We need to keep it that way . . .
