SUBSCRIBESTAR (subscribestar.com) Just announced that they are in the process of integrating a new payment processor for their platform. As of Monday December 17, 2018 it was announced that Paypal and Stripe both payment processors they use to accept payments for their creators have banned them from their platforms.
Although all of the facts have not been reported this does come on the cusp of the Patreon boycotting controversy that started last week. If you’re unaware of the patreon banning news I suggest looking into the banning of Sargon of Akaad and other creators that were politically motivated.
We need to talk about @Patreon and what appears to be a common move to create frameworks to selectively ban those who are not “woke-compliant”. There is a full flip where “Trust and Safety” means neither. The effect is to make it impossible to have adult discussions on platforms.
