if it were up to me i would just mail cash monies to people instead of patreon and all the "facilitators" and "enablers" and "gateways" could go hang


@er1n @gaditb @djsundog common myth, although it is a felony if done for the purposes of tax avoidance

@er1n @djsundog Is sending cash through the mail system not a felony?

... it's just a misdemeanor, isn't it. Or not even that?

@er1n @djsundog Look, sometimes you have to make sacrifices of fact if you want to create strong, eye-catching headlines.
I didn't say it was a particularly REPUTABLE newspaper...

@gaditb @er1n that's a libelous slander, or a slanderous libel, and I don't know which

@djsundog @gaditb @er1n Did you read it out loud, or was it a transcribed thing someone said? 😛​

(I'm kidding. Much like the drawing is not a pipe, the toot would be libelous, if anything.) (I'm not a lawyer, I'm definitely not your lawyer, and that's not legal advice.)

@gaditb @djsundog @er1n

hehe if it were felonious, everybody grandmothers would be in serious trouble for sending all those birthday and christmas card monies

@tcql @djsundog @er1n you're kinda assuming that it isn't standard operating procedure to just ignore most felonies committed by grandmothers, and I'm not sure I buy that tho


I mean, that was always an option, it's just hard to scale unless you're a church or a big non-profit.

@knightly so what we really need is a creator discovery platform and a handbook for how to open a post office box in various parts of the world!


Heh, that defeats the whole point of having a platform in the first place, to streamline the process and make it easy for people to support creators and creators to engage their supporters as possible.

@knightly okay, so we need a discovery and engagement platform for creators, where they can each personalize their interactions with their supporters. we can call it "my space"

@djsundog So long as it has some kind of address book with a list of creators, what they're making, pictures of them and their creations, what-have you.

A "Face Book" if you will~

@djsundog Someone sent me a 5 dollar bill once. I still wonder how they thought I was going to spend it, in Germany.
