Thanks for creating this great project, I really like it.
Apart from the Copyright thing (it sucks) I think this project is
really cool. If you are willing to share the source code, I would be
hosting one instance of this over Tor (As I do with other stuff).
I don't think there's a big difference between your platform and things
like, for example, Invidious, Nitter, Bibliogram or even Drew Devaults
HackerNews script. It simply makes reading *a lot* more pleasant.
I really like reading in my Gemini client and it sucks that so much
content is only published on Medium. 
I say take back the web. Copying culture is part of it. The thing you
do absolutely is in the spirit of the early web, including free
availability of information, to everyone.

People on mobile, with data caps, in rural regions of the US (or
Germany for that matter, or quite a lot of other countries) also have a
right to access this content, in my opinion. Your project is *great*
for that.

Thanks again, you are my hero of the day
