This entire debacle seemed to happen too quickly.

It’s a shame to see a good and popular author have to leave over something like this.

I agree that Medium is a far better place for dialogue than Twitter is. With popularity comes harrassers which just causes a reason to enforce red tape and bureaucracy.

I don’t think this ordeal should shake your faith in the platform, though. I feel as though it’d only take a few more days for the to resolve in a civil and correct manner, Medium staff have seemed to sincerely care about these kinds of things.

If anything, I think this should encourage writers — particularly women — to persevere. The law of serendipity states that Lady Luck favors those that keep trying.
