Actually 100% agree with Grubs here. It's a race to the bottom with this crap, same with auto playing videos, and tracking.

>but Medium is supposed to be good

Maybe Gruber shouldn't take assholes at their word? Just about every tech/media startup is going to have a great story about what they're going to do different to be more user-friendly. It's almost always bullshit.

Oh, a Medium site! This is going to be an unedited egotistical self-regarding stream-of-consciousness rant!

Gruber Watch:
"America’s more important than bloody politics from my point of view" Tim Cook

And this is the great disengagement with politics that leads to the ascent of money and crypto-fascism. It will not end well.

Sorry, I just don't see what the fuss is all abo... oh wait. Let's see... long-press the reload button... press "Reload Without Content Blockers"... Ah hah! So this is life without an ad blocker? Fuck that shit.

Grubs really should talk about an even bigger scourge on the web: survey and mailing list pop-ups. I wish those could be broadly ad-blocked.
