I will be leaving Patreon effective January 15th, 2019 and will be moving our fan funding directly to our own website at http://www.daverubin.com/donate

This was an incredibly hard decision to make and one that I do not take lightly. The banning of Carl Benjamin, aka Sargon of Akkad, was a massive move of the line of what is acceptable speech on these platforms, and I cannot in good conscience support Patreon as they assault free expression online.
