We get it, lots of folks struggle financially, and we have no problems linking to people’s patreon sites. Likewise, we link to YouTube videos that come with their own ads – its the price to pay to take advantage of the platform. But here at the dissociative.cafe, we don’t ask that you buy us a single cup of coffee.
We have no intentions of making any money off this project. We aren’t going to sell your data. We aren’t going to have affiliate links. We aren’t going to have a patreon. We’re tired of being marketed to and having our data mined. What’s given here is given freely. As long as T-E-C can stay gainfully employed, we’ll pay the hosting fees, the commissions, etc. It’s our way of giving back to our community.
Our hope is to create a small social network that exists without any commercial interests. You are not the product here, you are just a welcome guest. This site is an extension of our home – come on in and make yourself comfy. You’re welcome to stay as long as you don’t shit on the rug or one another.
