It's unfortunate that a decent chunk of cancellations may never return. :/ But I committed to demonstrating my intent and coming back if they got the message, they got it, and I'm back.

My Patreon pledges have been restored. Am happy this was resolved before anyone missed a cycle. @Gargron @TheAdmin @maiyannah

Anyone else miss Gawker as much as I do? The niche it filled in the journalism world? Let's fix that.

Despite specifying US dollar as my preferred currency, I can only select Liberapay donations in Euros? What's up with that?

I've canceled my $1 Patreon pledges. Taking a 35% price increase for creators to get an extra nickel isn't acceptable, and the only way Patreon will figure that out is if people don't pay it.

So Google wants to crucify Uber for using "ephemeral messaging" to avoid having records of potentially illegal activity... and then tried to block Uber from asking people who worked at Google if they ever were told to do the same there.

Watching two horrifically reprehensible companies go at each other is simply hilarious.
