As editors of The POM, we had to make some tough decisions. It is clearly not ideal for us to have to withdraw support from any of our writers, but in this case, that is what we felt we had to do. We have removed the writer and their work from our publication with a notice they are in violation of Medium rules and let them know they are not allowed to return to our publication as a writer until their account is in good standing — but I am not entirely confident in leaving this door open. Again, for the record, Medium rule violations will NOT be tolerated by The POM.
