Honest question: Why aren't you just posting the full article here on dev.to and linking back to medium using a canonical url? Lots of folk will start with "this article was originally published on Medium". Instead we're reading part of an article and then have to hop over to medium to finish reading. That kind of defeats the purpose of using dev.to for me.
Very much agreed!
