Rolli, thank you so much for your courageous and much-needed open letter. While I was not by any means making the income you were, nevertheless, what you so aptly described was also experienced by me, though I was not aware of some of the "political" reasons for these nasty changes. They are in large part why I am not writing on Medium any more, at least for now, waiting for a positive change, and wanting to find a better and friendlier platform. Frankly, among the unwanted changes, is the fact I cannot access all of my pieces any more. So again, thank you for your open letter.
