And still, after many complaints — this is the most consistent one I see — Medium chooses poorly. It seems to choose what it wants me to see rather than what my reading habits suggest I’d like to see. It also does not differentiate between articles and comments making it difficult to see content for comment clutter in the main feeds.

The way I used to use Medium to discover other writers I can no longer do unless I have a larger chunk of time. Publications that I regularly read and liked I have to go searching for. Medium has made those community connections a hassle to maintain, all because, from my perspective, it insists on force feeding me content I have shown no interest in reading.
