I think people would be less hesitant, I know I would, if Medium would demonstrate they have even a basic idea of internet security issues and get their bot problem under control. I must admit that recently my own bot follower problem has slowed considerably but it’s not gone away and I have no idea if things are better due to actions taken by medium or the bots have just gotten bored and moved on.
