I’m fine, if a little angry at how a friend has been treated. My posts don’t indicate obsession, just a realisation that if I wanted to rescue Svetlana’s work for her friends, I needed to do so before Google revisited the now-dead links and cleared its cache.

I find it interesting that the selection of insults traded with Svetlana I was able to find, and her replies, all back up what I said about her not being the instigator, and her replying in a reasonable manner when insulted. I was following Svetlana, so would have been copied with the terrible post she was supposed to have refused to delete, but I wasn’t: that is because there wasn’t one, was there? If the breach of Medium rules existed, I would have found it in my email inbox, like I just found your last update, or on the Google cache.

I have to conclude that no such message exists, and we are back to Political Censorship on Medium as the cause of her banishment. I see an injustice, and a suppression of free speech, and the explanations offered for why she might have been legitimately expelled reek to high heaven. I call BS!
