Medium itself began the push years ago to use Grammarly and suggest its use to all publications so it has become habitual. For some. It is not a very useful tool, particularly when it is used as a substitute for the well-trained human eye, and this was Ms. Kearley's point all along. Indeed, it has been the complaint of hundreds of Medium writers and editors for years. But many people are simply not listening. I have been rejected simply for not using Grammarly, and so have many other highly skilled and very qualified writers on this platform. It is perfidious and it is a scandal that must be brought to an end somehow. Yet it is a shame if a skilled editor like Ms. Cooper has to lose her position over this. A token. Hopefully, as you say, she will be using this to her advantage, and good luck.
