Svetlana isn’t just gone, so are all her stories. Every one I replied to now shows as “This story is unavailable.” That is censorship and suppression, and if imposed by Medium Admins, is a really stupid move. This is a tragedy for Medium: Svetlana was one of the truly original thinkers on Medium, so suppressing her for her conservative views debases the value of Medium. It is a poorer place without her, and I’ll miss her humour and concise logic. I may soon have to give up on Medium, too. I may follow Svetlana to Wordpress:

I work in IT, Community volunteer interested in Politics, support Capitalism as the best economic system for lifting people out of poverty, Skeptical scientist.
