If You Ain’t Been Kicked Off Medium, You Ain’t Tryin

  • 1 min read

True or false?

On Quora, I’ve received several questions in regard to getting banned.

I also got several DM’s from writers who received a message from Medium or had to report others.

Medium’s Rules forbid the following:

  • Threats of violence and incitement
  • Hateful content
  • Harassment
  • Exploitation of minors
  • Promotion and glorification of self-harm
  • Duplicate Content
  • Spam or Site Misuse
  • Copyright and trademark infringement
  • Ads, Promotions, and Marketing
  • Collection of Personal Information
  • Cryptocurrency Accounts, and Publications
  • Paid, automatic, bulk, or non-genuine interactions

As Medium states:

“Speak freely, comment frankly, and respond sharply. But treat each other well.”

If you don’t stick to the Rules, you’ll get an email like this:

“Your account is under investigation or was found in violation of the Medium Rules.”

My overall recommendation: Don’t act stupid and get banned.

What do you think?
