Re: Patreon going full shutdown

Some of Patreon's purging comes from activists within the company, but I expect stuff like this is more due to policies imposed by Mastercard, Visa etc, (which are somewhat in bed with the government(s)), and/or legal reasons. I don't claim to understand it all. "Operation Chokepoint" is an interest...
