Patreon is able to shut down the income of a creator that is flagged by a random user. This is, at times, warranted by the content of the creator but is a very slippery slope. Instead of leaving this source of funding to a company that takes a cut and can shut you down without notice; creators should use a donation platform that respects their privacy, freedom, and is open source.
I do have a Patreon page but never promote since I still want to build a substantial audience and not just blog for money. The problem with Patreon is that they started to kick off members that they don't agree with, mostly right-leaning content creators.
If my blog were 100% about tech and self-help, there would be little to worry about. However, I do talk about my faith, and in this current social environment, some people will flag accounts just because they disagree with the content.
How about those of you doing that just block the user?
It's a novel idea... I know...
