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
On a holoscreen, we see the image of Byron Tchaikovsky, a foppish streamer, mugging for the camera. The background is filled with the trademark 'BYRON' logo.
Byron: Good day, good day, my darlings! I'm Byron Tchaikovsky and I question everything!
Byron: Our question today is, has the venerable Smith & Holder Assurance agency gone off the rails? Jumped the shark? Lost its cool?
Byron is on the left side of the frame, filling the rest is an image of Diana as she was being medically treated at deClayre's mansion. She is naked under a sheet, her right arm laid bare to show the horrible broken fore-arm.
Byron: One of its agents, who we have recently identified, viciously assaulted a young refugee, Diana Martelli, while confronting her at her job.
On a broadcast set, we now see Byron seated in a tall chair next to Lorelei, also seated in a tall chair. Lorelei has been dolled up to look younger than before. The chairs are on a slightly raised platform.
Byron: She was able to flee the agent and found refuge with none other than Lorelei Wodenstar deClayre, who has become the girl's protector.
Caption: The way Bostwick dolled Lorelei up, she looked closer to 20 than 240.
Pull back farther to include a very uncomfortable-looking Diana sitting on another tall chair on the right of Lorelei. Her hair is waxed down, and her clothing makes her look like a tall 12-year-old.
Byron: Today we have Senhora deClayre with us in studio, and also the young Diana Martelli herself! May I call you Diana?
Diana: Uh, sure.
Caption: What that little fucker did to me, I will never forgive.
