I agree. It helps a lot for visibility if your posts have a fair chance of being curated and included into Medium publications. But ‘inclusive’ is not a word that exists in Medium’s vocabulary.

I still paid that $5 membership for over 2 years and accepted in good faith, their excuses for our non-inclusion in the Partner Program. But when they discontinued the Stripe preview after just one month with that ridiculous excuse, I cancelled the membership. If they can’t get the MPP running in India after more than three years, they are either incompetent or greedy. My view is it’s a combination of the two. Like the old saying goes, “You can fool some people some of the time, but not all people all the time.”

it’s an odd world
