Lol monkey dick is being useful.
The Valley plutocracy may turn less profit than the average lemonade stand but their honking capabilities have advanced by 72%, yoy. That’s priceless.
Gorilla Dick must push the bolded points below to really K/O them.
“Patreon, by banning a Creator, disrupts the economic relationship between Creator and Backer. In legal terms this is called tortious interference with a business relationship.”
“Social media FANG-type stock would collapse tomorrow if they couldn’t illegally handle your data and get away with it. PM/DMs/Email are privileged communications. If you’re speaking about medical issues over DM or to your lawyer by email, it is breaking privacy law (the human right) to scan or read it. They’re opening your letters.”
Their business model relies on spying and selling confidential data (international identity theft). And no, no data is anonymous. That’s a myth.
I do worry this expectation of political piety might be blurring the limits of our democracy, companies shouldn’t be given power as a moral arbiter, CLEARLY.
re “Pateron might owe money for past payments before they closed those people patrons because of TOS Violation”
Money retained in their names (de facto saving accounts) with none of the legal protections.
Sue to retrieve the funds PLUS interest.
re “That said, its a moot point for the reasons they started out with because as patreon should be well aware, its illegal in california to deny services to someone based on their ideological views. California is one of two current states where political ideology is an explicit protected class, which makes doing so a violation of the customers civil rights. and realistically, such a protection applies to all 50 states whether explicitly codified in law or not. Allowing a company to essentially force you to adhere to a certain political viewpoint or be denied services is grossly unconstitutional anyway and amounts to trying to intimidate a person into voting a certain way, which is explicitly illegal”
Blasphemy law, since most political beliefs are religious, which is internationally protected.
Is it an income tax (violating democracy) or is Patreon an agency?
What services do they provide, as an agency, that people cannot accomplish themselves? What is their USP? Are they a monopoly?
Web hosting? Payment processing? It’s just futile usury, they provide no unique service and on the scale from tax to agency fees, need to publicly declare what they are.
They are a private company, they are OBLIGATED to define themselves legally to the Government.
