Still on Strike, but Thanks for Reading

Paradoxically, now that I’m not writing — except for this blog — on Medium, people are going to my profile and reading some of my articles. It amuses me that you can do nothing and get results. That explains why some people are stars on Medium and why some aren’t, me included.

Here we go again. Because you won’t pay me what I’m worth, I’ve been forced to go on strike. I’m an above-average writer so I should have an above average-bonus. But clearly you don’t give a flying fig about such equations.
