Medium needs to stop doing this, or people need to stop using Medium.
It's a website that hosts blogs.
That you read.
it doesn't need your Fooglebaceook account.
@natecull Are there any Medium-adjacent services that you can recommend?
@christianbundy @natecull If you're looking for an alternative service to use in place of Medium, it's extremely easy to generate a site with Jekyll and publish it to IPFS/Dat or any halfway decent web hosting company.
True, I just really enjoy the fact that Medium (and Mastodon) are usable from a plain old web browser -- no server-side install required.
@christianbundy @alcinnz Wordpress.com is just as usable from a browser, and I assume Blogspot is still around, and if Livejournal weren't owned by Russia it also would be.
Nothing Medium does is new or special. It's 2000s era blogging - just way more naggy.

If you miss Livejournal, Dreamwidth runs the same software (more or less) but isn't subject to Russian law.
