As some of you may know, 99% of the funds that come in to support this site are from Patreon and Amazon. Recently, we received an automated message from Amazon letting us know that our Associates account has been terminated, upon review, “because the content promotes unsuitable activity.” This means that of our two primary funding sources, we are left with one.
Amazon is essentially doing to its creators what Google has been doing on YouTube for a year or two: censoring them and limiting or denying their freedoms of expression, ultimately demonetizing content.
If you are a regular visitor, we could use your support on Patreon more than ever before. There are various costs and expenses associated with maintaining this website and every single dollar contributed helps pay for those.
