Don’t you love the Medium? I do.

It’s a great place to meet other writers and has an interesting discussion. But there’s one thing you don’t want to do on Medium, and that’s getting locked in Medium jail.

With Medium, you can connect with other writers who share your interests and passions. Commenting and supporting others not only helps out but also allows you to learn more about what they think and feel.

It’s a great way to make connections that can last a lifetime.

If you enjoy interacting with writers, you won’t want to miss out on Medium’s commenting options.

Usually, I don’t. The only time is when I’m in medium custody. “Jail” is what I call it.

If you love to chat with writers, you’ll want to avoid getting locked in Medium jail at all costs. But what is Medium jail?

If you find yourself exceeding the comment limit, you may be temporarily locked out of commenting. This is what I call “Medium jail.” If you’re in Medium jail, don’t worry you can still read and write articles.

You just won’t be able to comment for a set period. And of course, you can always clap.

This only means that you can’t have any discussions with other writers about the articles you’re reading. You also can’t ask questions or give feedback about the stories or poems.

We all know that song, and we’ve all been there, or at least some of us. You post too many comments in a short period of time, and then you find yourself locked out of commenting for the next 24 hours. It just happened to me.

I was reading Logan Silkwood most fascinating story when I realized I had been ejected just as I was about to comment. The dreaded “you can’t comment at this time” message, followed by “it went to draft.”

Here’s the story I was reading:
