Is it possible Medium has sent you emails about what is happening, and they went to your spam folder? I know some of their emails went to my spam folder several times, and it seems like this is more than revisiting a decision to curate a piece. You say earnings have also been reduced to zero, which makes me suspect there’s more than meets the eye.
Also, someone else had already mentioned this, so I’ll reinforce the message: Don’t make your fans pay the price for something like this. Are they to blame? No, you should keep it up. People follow you regardless if you’re getting curated or not.
Own your audience with an email list, and not getting curated will become a lot less dramatic.
I am rooting for you, Rolli. Don’t destroy the incredible thing you built here.
