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
Back on Huoxing: At the entrance to a building with a sign marked (in both languages) "Escrow And Exchange House", Seamus waits by the entrance, as Peng-Bo Shen approaches surrounded by a phalanx of muscular, business-attired men.
Peng-Bo: Sorry I'm late, Dr. Murchadha.
Seamus: That's quite a retinue you've brought with you, Mr. Peng-Bo.

Panel 2
Seamus and Shen stand face to face, with Shen's retinue forming a semi-circle around him, facing outwards.
Peng-Bo: Oh, this is just my security team.
Peng-Bo: They accompany me anywhere I go in public.
Seamus: I see.

Panel 3
Closer shot of Seamus and Shen. We can still see one or two of the guards.
Seamus: I suppose this is a wise precaution, as your adoring public may resent your designs to disarm them.
Seamus: But aren't you worried about the zringer I'm wearing?

Panel 4
Shen gestures for Seamus to enter the building with him.
Shen: The weapons ban I'm proposing isn't for people such as you and me.
Shen: That's just for the commoners.
