Capitalizing Reddit upvotes

Apr 8, 2018
I found out there's a thing called Medium, basically people pay a $5 subscription, they can upvote medium articles, according to the upvote distribution, Medium give that $5 to article authors, while taking a cut.

Does this look suspicious?

Basically it's a circle jerk, someone wrote a Medium article, posted in this subreddit, saying "Oh yeah, f🅰️k yeah", normies upvote the submission to make it bump.
Some normies have a Medium subscription, they will upvote the article, thus circle jerking makes money.
