The Matrix Has Substack
Email glitches galore. Weirdorama.
Note to Readers: Some of you may never even see this post, and I have no idea who or why, but thems the substack breaks lately.
I tried to publish this post hours ago…
but I took it down because Substack’s email servers never sent it out. I have three different test emails (all proton) and none of them received anything in their inbox. The metrics also show that possibly thousands of others didn’t get it either.
Please comment at the bottom of this new piece if you got the original in your inbox and what email service you use. These issues have been going on for two months now and I’d like to figure out who, what, why.
If these problems are specific to an email provider or if Substack just can’t keep its head above water lately, who knows what’s going on? I’m seriously looking at switching services now, as in right now, as these tech issues are getting exhausting for the large 10% fees they take.
What’s strange is Anne Coulter’s substack newsletter worked. Her post on illegal immigrants (Shock!) hit one of my protonmail inboxes. Harrison Koehli’s Political Ponerology post did not work, so it’s not just my newsletter having issues. Lioness of Judah Ministry just hit my inbox, so that’s 2 working, 2 failing.
For a long time, I would be wondering why some writers went quiet over the past months, and then I’d go to their substack pages and see posts that never hit my inbox, so it’s not happening every time to everyone but it’s happening.
To quote one of the greatest 80s films: Weirdorama.
Are any other writers having issues?
Don’t count on any “tech support” from the Substack nerds. They’re useless.
Maybe there’s a special way to send emails that does not involve clicking the “publish” button.
The spoon does not bend itself.
One does not send the email. That is impossible. There is no email.
Bleating bleat bleat bleat! Substack Mot^&#@%&!@!$~!!!!!!!
