About the Patreon Contretemps [ Dec 18, 2018 ]
Patreon's recent moves to de-platform some popular YouTube personalities who have upset a censorious subset of progressives has alarmed all of us who value an ethic of open discussion, even when opinions expressed are sometimes quite difficult to tolerate. Maybe especially then.
I have had several Patrons drop out of the system and ask me to set up an account with an alternative subscriber service. However, there seems to be a Twitter-based activist group of "Social Justice Warriors" which can attack and shut down alternative services lest they become a haven for the wrong crowd. Maker-Support and SubscribeStar have both fallen victim to these racketeers.
Now, I know that some of my readers are here because they like my politics, but many others don't care about the politics but enjoy the stories. And all of you are important to me. But some of you want an alternative subscription service and I am open to any such that seems able to withstand assaults from the Blue Meanies. I have word of such a system in the works and will adopt it quickly if it pans out.
I'm also following Minds.com and Steamit.com, which offer a means for people to support creators, but they deal in crypto-currencies, which at present are not as easy for most people to deal with as their national currencies. But new innovations may change this, so I haven't written them off either.
In the meanwhile, I'm sticking with Patreon, out of financial necessity. If and when I make a move to either add an alternate service or replace Patreon, I will announce it here and elsewhere. And I understand those of you who cannot bring yourselves to consider supporting me through Patreon and will happily welcome you back when I can offer you a better choice.
Thanks for hanging in there with me!

The Transcript For This Page
An Enig Quasifem, Darrel Farrel, is framed against a background showing the logo of the Jaxx Forge Company. A smaller logo for Realnews and a bar carrying the name 'Darrel Farrel' is in the lower left corner of the frame. There's a time stamp: 1070.08.11.05:50
Farrel: The Jaxx Forge company is under fire again after three company officers resigned last Quinday amid allegations of embezzlement and kick-back schemes.
Farrel: Jaxx Forge, of course, is a major supplier of the dynasteel forms used in spacecraft, aircraft, and hydrocraft manufacture.
Cut to med shot of Diana at her breakfast table, eating her breakfast as she is viewing the news. Farrel's voice continues from OP.
Farrel (OP): Realnews reached out to those executives for comment, but they refused to respond directly.
Farrel (OP): However, René Hauk, an attorney representing ex-COO Dyson Ming, categorically denied all of the claims placed against his client.
Now we see Ren Hauk an attractive but stern-looking woman, facing a brace of newsies.
Hauk: We will go to arbit and when all the facts are presented in their proper context, there is no doubt Mr. Ming will be fully exonerated.
Hauk: And afterwards he intends to resume his stellar career as operations director.
Cut back to Diana looking cynical with a mouth full of egg.
Diana (thought): But it won't be directing operations at Jaxx Forge.
Diana: I'll bet Ming sells out the other two in exchange for a light judgment.
Diana: I wonder what kind of odds they're offering on that at the parlor.
