I don't think Substack will fold, but back-ups are never a bad idea.
That we are even having this conversation in a Western democracy shows just how low things have got in the last two years.
Am hoping for the Streisand Effect in that more people are now aware of something called Substack and are checking it out.
Godspeed, Eugyppius. Thank you for all you do.
We'll follow you wherever you end up, but hopefully Substack will stand strong. We have got to stop giving in to the forces that want to destroy freedom, democracy, science, and everything good in our culture.
We really are in a war right now, aren't we? Without hearing gunshots to most it goes unnoticed. Without the means of communication we lose the war and our freedom. Thank you for staying in the fray.
It is insane that free citizens in the Western world should have to take such counter measures just to preserve peaceful speech and discussion.
You're a mensch Eugy. Agree with Holly this will boomerang on the digital hate dummies and Substack will be a net winner.
Never stop talking about censorship so substack knows that we know they know we know.
It's good to have a contingency plan. But I'm feeling rather optimistic, with things like Substack making their post on the matter, and Joe Rogan winning over Neil Young. Also, hearing that Gavin Newsom is vacillating regarding covid vaccine requirements for children. I was more surprised when he did the super pro-vaccine stance, full well knowing that he personally has antivax friends in his social circle. The anti-science Operation Warp Speed marketing campaign has been a smashing success in its attack on science, and it looks to me as though we are on the winning side - and it will soon be clear to everyone that we are.
You. Are. A. Hero.
Thank you. You all empower me in this forum. I see darkness disappear and the light return. You make me stronger.
If you write it they will come.
I’ve lost all faith in mankind if it gets to this. I’m almost 70 and retired. I think I’ll go hide. WTF is wrong with people??? I will follow you……
Thank you. I knew when Ron Johnson referred to Substack that the mainstream would take notice. Substack is making a big difference. Then Alex Berenson warned. Keep us posted.
So glad you have a backup plan. I’m wondering if there has been any indication that the attacks on Substack might be attracting people to it who didn’t know of its existence or whose curiosity revealed to them what great writers it has? You know, like the Streisand effect? Such backfiring would be nice.
How can we get center for countering digital hate shut down?
Oh sorry. We don't function like that.
