“We will not be associated with you…"
“…Even on an anonymous substack profile.”
Substack shows subscriber activity for each published article and displays it starting with the users who interact most with the newsletter. A while ago, I’ve noticed some subscribers who, according to substack, open each letter several times and interact a lot with my blog. I checked their profiles and saw that they read my journal secretly – while apparently proudly displaying dozens or hundreds of different substacks, they “hide” from the “public” (whoever might check their profiles in a largely anonymous forum) the fact that they interact with my materials. I checked several others and discovered that there are lots of “secret readers.”
It reminded me about the hypocrisy and phoniness of the people whose opinions are being successfully formed and manipulated through various – often underhanded – strategies.
There are so many frauds, liars, phonies, content sellers, panderers, shills, limited-narrative-utterers, all of the above, and more — but the “public” apparently proudly associates with them. So many seem to be proud to support phonies or malicious frauds whose goal is purely enrichment and who cater to the “public taste” and sell their “products” to them. Those same people are “ashamed” to show - even anonymously - that they read my journal.
I wonder — why do they read it at all? Maybe they should already press that “unsubscribe” button — that way their “secret” that they ever interacted with my content might be safer.
I understand that there might be exceptions and certain users do not display any subscriptions at all (rather than displaying them selectively) and some show even the journals that they read in order to take critical shots at the authors. However, there is certainly a large category of “consumers” that readily respond to the “advertisements” and proudly belong to the controlled opposition and other similar “communities.”
Thank you all of you who is not “ashamed” to show on her/his substack profile, albeit anonymous, that she/he reads my journal. A special thank you to those of you who liked or commented on my posts, written about the crimes, committed against me under color of law. Given that absolutely all purported “activists” and “reporters” intentionally ignore my reports or any information or evidence of the “official crimes,” your support is very important.
