Although… most browsers (and even the Medium apps in iOS) allow lookups. I’ve used that a far number of times in Medium pieces, sometimes because I didn’t know the word (and sometimes the dictionary didn’t either, but Google did), sometimes because I questioned the word usage (I don’t think this is what she meant to say… okay, nevermind, apparently she did, my bad). So while I agree with you overall, Lecia, if I have a choice between a simple word and a more complex one, on Medium I’m more inclined to go high.
