Open the site

Code: Select all

https://medium.com
now after reading 5 to 6 news articles, then you will see this message "You’ve reached the end of your free member preview for this month" forces you to pay. Please check and please fix this paywall issue

Thank you

I am seeing the same issue. Is this only for adblocked users?

Deleting all cookies works, but need a rule that will take of this problem.
Could anyone provide a rule??

I doubt Easylist would try to fix a paywall. Just block cookies for that domain and it will work.

If the site is using a server-side paywall implementation there is nothing to do.
