Medium tries to prevent people reading deleted articles on The Wayback Machine ā†’

Daniel Caffrey writing for Selected Intelligence:

I was recently trying to check a reference on an article Iā€™d read on Medium about 2 years ago. It had been removed from Medium by its author. So I checked the link on The Wayback Machine and there were plenty of snapshots. However when I click on any of them I get immediately redirected to the homepage.

Iā€™m not exactly sure of the benefits for Medium with this, but it seems pretty aggressive to me.
