In India, we have a saying which loosely translates as, ‘Only a crying baby gets milk.’ So I’m glad to see you also have written about the non-inclusive nature of Medium’s partner program. If excluded writers like us make more noise, there’s a better chance of more people on the platform becoming aware of the issue. Maybe that will make Medium change, or maybe they are just too thick-skinned and won’t. It’s one of life’s ironies that the ‘haves’ are often greedy, while the ‘have-nots’ are generous. Whatever the case, it’s good to see you aren’t holding your breath, and have moved on. All the best.
