This sentiment among people who want free, free, free is so paradoxical that I want to scream. They’ll readily pony up cash for a book on Amazon they want to read (be honest, so few people use the library anymore, plus they can’t get a release the day of, God forbid) but they refuse to pay for writing on Medium that moves them. Instead—and thankfully—Medium has allowed the partner program, but even then people have got in bitch sessions about the Member content. $5 is too much per month, but their $7 mocha latte frappuccino is totes cool every day. SMH.
