The IGDORE Global Board is looking into different ways to accept donations. Patreon has come up as a potential alternative, used by e.g. PSA. However, there has been some criticism against Patreon, most importantly (according to me at least), they have been criticised for banning people who have - outside of the platform - expressed controversial opinions (on gender and race, I think). Serious professionals like Dr. Sam Harris left Patreon in December 2018 due to those bans. I couldn’t find a better overview of the issues raised than this one.
What do you think about Patreon? And do you have any thoughts on whether IGDORE should use the platform or not? Thoughts on alternative platforms are also very welcome!
