I don't think people got mad because they didn't win. I think the main criticism was that all stories were heavily leaning towards social justice/ victimhood / political correctness, etc., which displays Medium's long-term desire for what they want to see on this platform. People don't hate competition, they hate politicized/biased/optics-based competition.
