Good on ya. I know nothing about web hosting or reviewer remuneration and will restrain my Orwell quotes. But I have always been opposed to monetization and commodification of net content by corporate powers. Clearly, this is censorship by private powers in matters that even governments purport to not possess and protect against.
The only way that I can see to free ourselves from this evil shit is to user support the content provider. I know this is likely wishful thinking but if just 10 or 20% would donate to the content providers that they benefit from, then the provider might not have to worry about penalties (monetary fines) masquerading as “community guidelines.” I don’t know. Predicting what sociopathic powers will do next is an exercise in futility.
I read a LOT and enjoy internet radio. All of my news and information sources that I rely on are under attack. All of them, and many of them are not even located in the US. Fuck the MSM and the deep state that controls them.
On that note I make a small monthly donation to VC and suggest that everyone else do the same if they are able. (not telling anyone what to do)
