Down and Out Error 1016
On Substack and The Good Citizen future.
This post will self-destruct in 72 hours, so comments are disabled. I wanted to send just an email, but it appears substack doesn’t offer that option, along with many other options that its competitor Ghost does, but more on that below.
Yesterday many of you Good Citizens noticed that Substack was down with an error page. Thanks to those of you who emailed me.
It was down for roughly 2.5 hours. It was the third Substack multiple-hour outage in the past month. This is getting silly now.
Normie: Substack needs to upgrade their servers or something.
Nerds: Substack’s bandwidth protocol is running an unoptimized version of Cloudflare synthesis that doesn’t boot load on concurrent command line switch wires.
Good Citizens: The CIA and Pentagon are really hitting Substack hard with the DDOS attacks lately.
Of course, it happened 20 minutes after I posted a video that died on the vine. A new post generally has the initial three hours to thrive or die. That’s when the vast majority of you click and read or click and watch, and hopefully share. After spending days on an essay or hours on a video cut, only to have Substack crash right after publishing can be incredibly frustrating, to say the least.
Here it is again, a little comic cut on our unfurling technocratic dystopia:
In other news, Twitter has dumped me for a third and final time. I refuse to delete an “offensive” tweet to be in the good graces of a bunch of communist rats. Not sure what was offensive, that poisoned dwarf Fauci needs to stand trial for crimes against humanity or that I recommended a trout fishing line for the after party.
I’ll be crowdfunding a lawsuit against Twitter for defaming a blindfolded sheep and trout fishing line. I’ll be using Alex Berenson’s law firm, so please give me all your money so I can pay my legal bills and buy a second condo in Brooklyn near my old New York Times buddies that I really hope will like me again.
To be honest I knew the day was coming that I would finally break my cherry. Now I can join the other Good Fellas full time on whatever balkanized platforms are out there for language deviants and thought criminals who offend the emotionally fragile bedwetters of Twitter’s (and the CIA/CFR/White House/NSA/Pentagon’s) Orwellian Trust and Safety Council.
Lastly, with Substack’s technical problems, and the likelihood that it will continue to be under attack from the official narrative managers of the corporate state, please remember you can always find me at my home URL should this place collapse.
If this sounds like paranoia keep in mind their censorship of the past few years and the billions of dollars spent on an army of 150k “influencers”, the $380 million the Gates Foundation gave to corporate media, and all the asinine official CDC and WHO warning labels to control “misinformation”. The greater their coming tyrannies, the more they will be dedicated to the cause of destroying platforms that undermine their agenda.
Substack is where everyone migrated to get past their official censors during the plandemic. They have Substack in their sights and it’s a San Francisco-based company with funding from Venture Capital groups that have ties to Google, Facebook, Twitter, the intelligence community, and Military Industrial Complex. It wouldn’t take much leaning on Substack to get them to start dumping creators for their corporate state masters. A visit by a couple of Agent Smiths to the CEO’s office with a photo of his children on a playground would probably be enough.
The more their crimes come to light and the more they get uncomfortable at the thought of an angry pitch-forked mob of vaxocaust family survivors wanting answers, the more they will censor, blacklist, block, or attack individuals, companies, and platforms. The path of censorship is always paved with increased censorship.
It’s quite surprising Substack has made it this long without banning creators. The first time they do it, that’ll be the end of this place. Let’s hope they hold firm and keep resisting as the pressure continues to mount.
As an insurance policy or perhaps to get ahead of all that I’ve been exploring her competitor Ghost — a customizable newsletter platform that automatically migrates all Substack posts, and subscribers (paid and free), and doesn’t take 10% of creator revenue. The monthly costs of Ghost however can get substantial once a creator hits 10,000 or more Subscribers and since that’s soon approaching, I need to crunch some numbers first to see if the benefits really outweigh staying here.
If I do end up on Ghost, nothing would be required on your part. It’s just an automatic migration, including the same payment processor.
Either way, I can only expand and grow with your help. If you can’t be a paid subscriber you can support me by sharing videos and essays on as many platforms as possible.
