I will use this post as an opportunity to get up on my soapbox. In my opinion, Medium's downward spiral began with the hiring of Siobhan. Changes to the algorithm and putting lipstick on the profile page at the expense of butchering the interface and functionality in the process shortly followed. My expectations for Medium as a publishing platform for independent writers is at an all-time low, and I doubt that the purging of the editorial staff will change that.
