I may be crazy, but I think it’s worth the effort.
I’ve decided to file a formal complaint with the federal trade commission against Patreon and PayPal for antitrust violation. I believe that there is now sufficient evidence for an FTC investigation to see if PayPal and Patreon colluded in PayPal’s termination of its credit card processing from SubscribeStar.
After I announced this I was impressed by the number of people from around the world who offered to help. We are forming teams to tackle various parts of the project and if you want to help you can apply here. That link takes you to the Free Speech Action server where one of the managers will explain how you can help.
Preparing this complaint will take me away from my normal paid work and the time and effort required would normally be fulfilled by a team of lawyers with staff support.
I plan to do this on a budget. Therefore if you are also able to help cover some of my costs, that would be greatly appreciated too.
