Scott's List of Proud Patrons



About the Patreon Contretemps [ Dec 18, 2018 ]

Scott here.

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

Panel 1
More of a frontal angle on Zander, talking happily. Lanky older teenager sprawls in his chair.

Caption: Zander Metaxas went through a growth spurt in the year since we came to this city.
Caption: In more ways than one. His talent for understanding complex systems has propelled him into a sort of elite among young hackers.
Panel 2
Medium close-up on Diana gesturing as she 'speaks.'

Caption: Yes, I know the Q-links in our implants are supposed to be impervious to eaves-droppers.
Caption: Still, having grown up on Zytemonde has instilled a healthy … let's call it caution, when discussing legally questionable activities.
Caption: So, I used code-words and other round-abouts to get across what I needed Zander to do for me.
Panel 3
Looking past Diana at a holo-image on Zander in front of her. He's looking cocky.
Caption: In the first few cycles after we arrived, I could ask Zander to do most anything that had to do with technical stuff and he'd happily do it for me.
Caption: But now he's caught on to how things work in Bubbleopolis, and the value of his skill.
Panel 4
Otto comes up behind Diana as she is still engaged with Zander, startling her.
Caption: We were negotiating his fee, when ...
Otto: Senhora Martelli! They've found your boss, Sr. Gómez!
