I don’t think you can tag on the sidebar — that’s the only part I don’t like about the update.

Anyways, thanks for alerting me, Kitty. I wouldn’t have realized we were being swindled otherwise, and that writers themselves were. I love how Medium can be a place where the toxicity of other platforms (I.e. Reddit) can be absent but it also baffled me how much of that must go on under the radar without us knowing. It was just crazy that the plagiarism was that verbatim and people who plagiarize more skillfully, that go beyond just changing the title, are probably uncaught.
