As I read through this I was at least a little bit comforted by the fact that I do not believe our little web-site here (aka Medium) suffers from as many of the same ills you so correctly point out plague much of the internet at large. At the very least it does not seem to be an active contributor (for the most part) to these problems, and perhaps can even be seen as an antidote to some of them. It is far from perfect no doubt but for the most part serves as a good counterweight to the worst offenders. So….yeah?
