I was blocked as well. Like you it’s the first person who blocked me. My crime asking if he was a hypocrite for locking his post moaning about other writers locking their posts. Which was ironic because apparently he had come off Medium, so how did he read my comment.
I was naive that this bullying took place and it genuinely shocked me.
However, the positive from all this was that I found your post and another writer to follow. Thanks for the article.
