Will Medium ever embrace Anonymous?

Will Medium ever embrace Anonymous? The journalist in me always thinks that anonymity can be a positive thing for sources but that journalists should be named and held to account. But it has also turned places like Twitter into a trash fire. I can see the need for pseudonyms if you don’t want to write about certain subjects under your own name. But anonymity can also facilitate hate speech and other bad behaviour. Medium would have to enforce even stricter policies on the type of content that’s permissible on the platform. They’d also have to up their security and encryption to protect people’s identities. I can’t see them going for it. Which means of course that tomorrow they will announce that they’re going for it.
