Gripe about Medium

Opening the link caused Medium to open their ‘helpful’ overlay inviting me to create an account. Thankfully, Reader View kicked in so I didn’t have to glare at it for long. However, because of the ‘clever’ lazy-load way that Medium loads images in their articles, I then had to turn off Reader View, and close the overlay, in order to see any of the images in full rather than fuzzy low-res. Another reason why I tend to avoid Medium as a source for reading or inspiration.
