Subscribe Star and Patreon are being used by others, especially in the YouTube community, that are having issues with PP. From what I can tell, the people and creators who use these services seem happy.
If you think the PP thing is problem, better keep an eye out for what's happening with MasterCard right now. It seems that they will be voting on the issue of having a "human rights" panel decide who and who should not be allowed to use their services. As I understand it, the board over at MasterCard is letting shareholders know this would be a bad idea, but I can tell you this, if they pass that shit, dump them immediately.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.
