I would be devastated if Medium ended up taking action against you, Joao Nascimento, for doing the decent thing and urging people to remain civilized.
I sincerely hope this won’t be the case.
For my part, I am doing what I can to defuse the situation by providing the necessary background new readers won’t be familiar with as this info was completely absent from Tony’s piece.
To be fair, picking up the pieces after someone who caused me grief isn’t standard procedure but it makes editorial sense to me in the context of what I do, how I do it, and why.
Because advocacy calls for radical honesty and transparency.
Thanks again for your support, it means a lot. :-)
Hopefully we call all step back now and just agree to disagree in a civilized and mutually respectful manner.
This whole episode has been rather distressing and I will be glad not to have to deal with its fallout anymore.
