Entry pre-update:

Hi! If you’re looking for my article “Debunking The Assange Smears”, you can find it by clicking this hyperlink here. As of this writing Medium has removed it citing “A private person who is the subject of publicity or exposure of personal information, despite not having apparently invited public attention to themselves in general or in relation to a particular issue.”

I have no idea what this means, and Medium Staff refuse to specify. I’ve taken a guess that it might have to do with the “rapist” section of the article, so I’ve revised it with the names removed (also removed in the link I hyperlinked to in the preceding paragraph) even though they’ve been mainstream public knowledge for years. I’ve asked that they review the suspension. We’ll see if that works.

I write about the end of illusions.
