I have belatedly received this message from Svetlana, and am taking her thanks as authorization from Svetlana to republish these posts:
“ Hi Al.
Thanks for the supportive article you posted on Medium. It is irritating to see lies printed about you when you cannot respond so I do appreciate your attempt to set the record straight on my behalf.”
I have noticed that I have received no email notifications from Medium since 17/03/2018, after reposting as many of her posts as I could rescue from Google cache on 15/03/2018. I suspect that this is the first step in banning me. With Svetlana already gone, I’m not sure I’ll miss Medium all that much.
Update: Medium help-desk restored my email notifications which had been accidentally turned off coincidentally the day after I started republishing Svetlana’s work. Everything is back to normal now.
