    A significant portion of Medium's UX flow is based on preferences and navigating users to an article per their preferences. The suggestion at the bottom of the page on web is a small thing, but the mobile app (swipe right and get delivered new content) is critical to how they've built their browsing experience. I tend to think this isn't as malicious as it is an artifact of how they've chosen to deliver content at the core of their experience. Whether or not that's a good UX decision is another question.

    IMO: I agree with another poster, Privacy > UX, especially if the UX is confusing or obfuscates choice, as I think Medium's does.
