I would agree with you, had it looked like stories from the Partnership program would populate the reading lists of free Medium readers. But as it looks now, Partnership stories -the stories Medium will buy- will only be available to those who Joined the Membership program- those who are paying for the stories- I still believe that this will always be a minority of users. So they can’t actually ‘push’ stories to a point they drown out free stories.

Writer of fiction, blogs and erotica. Frequency in that order. Popularity in reverse.
