Holy whiplash, Shaunta! Thanks for alerting us to this new (or newly expressed) rule. I can see how it feels a little harsh for those who had luck with unlisting and republishing or getting curators to take a second look at their work — but I can see Medium’s point in doing this. Writing for the platform is becoming much more like writing for the world beyond Medium, where you always and only get one chance. So I guess we’re all getting a little more real . . . here’s wishing the best to you and all my fave Medium writers.
