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
Nicole is pinned to the back end of a short corridor by Mac Park's two muscle-women. One of the woman covers Nicole's mouth with her hand, to prevent Nicole from calling for help. Mac stands in front of the seemingly-helpless Nicole.
Mac: So, you and the ape think you're better than us?
Mac: My friends and I have a different point of view.
Panel 2
Looking down at Mac from Nicole's POV. We can see some of the two muscle-women in the frame.
Mac: I warned you when you came here not to cross me.
Mac: So now, I'm going to give you what we call a 'tune-up.'
Panel 3
Nicole's right leg is free, and she uses it to kick Mac, hard. Mac flies back in a high arc, in the low Lunar gravity.
SFX: PUNT
Panel 4
Split panel -- in the first half, Mac hits the wall opposite the short corridor, belly-first. In the second half, she flops onto the floor, on her back.
SFX: WHOMP
SFX: PLOP
Panel 5
Back in the short corridor, the two muscle-women (let's call them Alex and Betty) are looking back in the direction Mac went, with uncertain expressions.
Alex: She took out teh boss! Waddo we do?
Betty: Finish wid teh tune-up, Ai gess.
Panel 6
Alex and Betty commence pummeling Nicole, in her face and stomach. Her legs flail helplessly.
SFX: THUMP THUMP WHUMP THUMP
Panel 7
Medium-shot of a battered Nicole slumping to the floor as Alex and Betty suddenly let go of her.
Nicole: buh-huuuuh

Panel 8
Switch to Nicole's POV: A clearly enraged Buford is on the scene, a too-small jumpsuit barely affording coverage. She has grasped Alex and Betty by their necks, her thumbs and fingers pressing on their carotid arteries. Alex and Betty flail helplessly, their eyes bugging out and their faces turning dark.
Buford: GRRRRRRRR
