I have to say the two writer I consider to be the biggest hitters on Medium, yourself and Shannon Ashley are two of the nicest people you can talk to.

However, I agree with aspects of this article there are a handful of people who have had great success on Medium, who treat other writers without respect.

I had an incident this year where a writer I greatly admired, chose to copy one of my articles. It makes you wonder about everything else you have read by them.

Writers on Medium need to appreciate that fans only last so long. They are not gods and if you piss enough people off your popularity will suffer.

Thanks for writing this article.
