The Reaction I Got On Medium After Responding To A Comment

Despite all this, I want all writers to know that this is a valuable lesson for all of you on Medium.

OOPS! I was not aware of this policy from Medium, and I did receive a warning from them a couple of days back.

And, here are the sequence of events.

  1. I responded recently to a comment from one of the authors that resonated with my specialty writing.
  2. I provided my comments and also included a link to one of my earlier stories on a similar topic I wrote.
  3. However, I did receive an email from Medium within a few hours stating that this is a violation of their policy and I might get removed as an author due to this issue.
  4. I responded immediately to Medium folks, and they acknowledged it within a few hours stating that I am fine and should read their policies.

The reason I am sharing this story is…

  1. I was not aware of this, and I should have read their policies in more detail. I hope some of you benefit from this also.
  2. I am thoroughly impressed with Medium’s responsiveness and proactive approach.

Thanks once again, Medium, for all the support and guidance.
