This may just be a technical issue tonight, but I hear this is happening a lot. 

I have no love for Patreon, but there are good people who depend on the company remaining solvent and giving them their actual checks. The signs are not good however

There is more here. There are indications that the issue actually comes from a huge influx of venture capital. That is, the business model of Jack Conte was sound, but the company accepted a huge influx of money, from people who expected a very large return and now have Conte by the shorthairs. 

While I'm a member of Subscribe Star and am quite impressed with their apparent dedication to free speech and how they have recovered from their deplatforming by MasterCard and Paypal.  I have no illusions regarding the implications and future prospects of a free-speech platform operating out of Russia.
