I agree with you and thanks for your comment. Here's where I stand with long sentences: most writers on Medium are not skillful and artful enough writers to write long sentences. So, their long sentences ramble on and end up confusing the reader. Yes, many great writers use long sentences to great effect. For the most part, my readers are beginning writers or those who've been writing a while and could use some basic help.
