Like OffG? We need your help to keep going

Hi all. So here’s the deal.

Last December we lost our Patreon and with it a huge percentage of our income.

About 60%.

Since then we have been running on a shoestring.

Following our covid19/11 series we had further video and podcast projects we were forced to cancel because we could not afford to pay our video editors for their time.

All our income since then has been going on simply keeping the site ticking over.

To make matters worse we are now reliant on PayPal for almost all of our remaining income. With PayPal’s planned “new conditions” regarding “misinformation that may cause harm”, we could soon be banned from there also. If that were to happen now we would essentially be dead in the water.

So, we are making some major changes in the way we can be funded.

Below you can find our new simplified donation form powered by Donorbox and Stripe, which will appear at the bottom of each new article.

We’re also now on two Patreon alternatives, Ko-Fi and SubscribeStar.

But this means nothing without your support.

You see, unlike some other alt media we really do not have any source of funding other than reader contributions.

We don’t have any well-placed supporters who send us monthly pay checks.

We don’t have “connections” in the establishment

We don’t have wealthy political friends.

All we have is you.

We understand times are tough for everyone, but if each visitor gave us just 10 pence/cents per month our financial problems would be over.

It’s just that most don’t.

…And that’s fine by the way!

We want people to access our content for free, and we don’t want anyone to feel obliged to pay just to read the information we provide, which is why we have never, to date, put anything behind a paywall, even temporarily.

But the bottom line is, looking forwards, if we can’t get back the income we lost from Patreon we won’t be able to continue running OFFG.

So, if you value what we do – now really is the time to show it.

If you read something you like, makes you think, makes you happy, makes you cross, makes you want to engage and leave a comment, like, or share… drop a few coins in our jar, using one of the easy methods below.

Every little really does help.

SUPPORT OFFGUARDIAN

If you enjoy OffG's content, please help us make our monthly fund-raising goal and keep the site alive.

I hope that you will go off the air ! The ridiculously pretentious,arrogant and poorly referenced narrative (with the only and unique source always being the Riley Wiggley Waggaman (an American in Moscow ,with a dubious reputation in Moscow) that Russia
is just as evil as everybody else and they are ALL just out to kill us anyway bla bla bla has
just reminded me once again about how untrue it is that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. You were and are very good on Covid. But since the end of february you have maneuvered yourself (Kit especially) to the rim of the alt media, taking Iain Davis with you(who I hope will never appear on UK Colum again because of his ludicrous remarks about Putin’s speech), where you will get, I’m sure’, less and less attention. You are not
my friends. On the basis of the information available you can not claim what you pretend to know. You DON’T know. You don’t encourage debate. You divise us. You’re attitude is driven by ideology.

If you were less interested in seeing people ’off the air’ and more interested in addressing the evidence this would be encouraging debate, wouldn’t it?

Also is declaring OFFG ‘good’ on Covid and then proceeding to inform us where Covid begins and ends possibly a little cocksure? 😅 when we say we think it’s far from over perhaps you could put a little store in that?

At the recent G20 summit Russia were there with everyone else to sign lovely pledges committing to CBDCs, ‘renewable’ energy, ‘reformed’ food production, increased internet surveillance and censorship, and ‘global digital health networks’ which include international vaccine passports.

Covid policy has been no different in Russia than elsewhere and unless you’re invoking 5-D chess – ie placing two unfalsifiable fingers in your ears – all the signs point firmly to Russia’s full complicity and absorption into the globalist system that gave birth to the Great Reset agenda.

OFFG is sorry if you find these implications upsetting, however the evidence is no less there. By all means present or link to counter evidence and OFFG will be glad to address it.

May we also remark that we think it’s a little low to late-post beneath a funding drive from three weeks ago rather than address your point in more relevant/current sections.

Thank you for your comment, A2

The admin’s have placed member’s in pending prison, you cant blame everything on WP or Akismet. I feel it quite offended you claim you dont ban people when I know a person who was banned for disagreeing with the admin,. The person you banned was a moderator from freetofindtruth F2FT forum who bored the hell out of us on the F2FT forum with the whole debacle . Screen shot the whole 9 yards. Not a isolated case either.
To be honest, they did not do much wrong. We;re not stupid, so stop playing us for fools with this ‘we dont ban any one’ nonsense..

How about actually excepting some responsibility and accountability rather than blaming everyone else including tek.
For admins you do get involved in commenting and replying more than other admins however you do get quite aggy when people disagree with you or your article writers more than other admins from other forums.
That aside.

Off g is cool set up. well done commentators and admins mods owners etc.

I will send you a few drinks and make it regular as do not want to see you close.

Dont cancel me for saying the above either. handshake emoji.

Maybe Sam and Sophie should write a article about the life of a admin during covid.
Be interesting to see what the other side is like.

Maybe spend less time on having your moderators censor posts?
Most of my comments seem to be disappeared unless I’m agreeing with the article in question.
On Russia Ukraine you post Waggaman nonsense but nothing about a historic Valdai Club speech? Or maybe I missed it?
You did stellar work in the first year of the pandemic and I’m grateful for that. But quite honestly, 90% of the stuff you post nowadays is either boring opinion or articles that can be found elsewhere with far more lively debate allowed (Iain)..

I am truly sorry about what the payment platforms are doing, but you’re not making things easier for yourselves by having admins come in and admonish commenters for challenging your narratives or disappearing the comments altogether in Guantanamo spam filter.

I have often posted things critical to their editorial choices, but haven’t been deleted. And I agree with you that a few articles are mindless drivel that add very few for the discerning minds.

However, I don’t It is about what you say, but how you build your argument. For example if say “such nonsense like Riley” and don’t really explain exactly why It should be such a nonsense, while at the same time you mention the Valdai Club but fail to see why OffG should pay attention to it (more thats being done by other alt media) …. Well you also nothing anything constructive to the discourse.

Don’t you think?

(And I personally think both Riley and Valdai are worth being here)

Um, my explanation of why Riley was nonsense never got through…..I did provide it as well as an argument of Riley’s thesis more generally. .
If you look at his last article carefully, it was nothing more than a couple of paragraphs machine translated from other articles, a handful of links and a whole lot of spooky looking photos of……CCTVs. I’d be embarrassed to send such a shoddy piece of “journalism” to OG.

What Riley does (and he does it quite well) is to counter the narrative “bad yankee/good rusky” by exposing all those pieces of mainstream journalism that are often “overlooked” and show exactly how Russia is following the same agenda as everyone else.

In other words, he gives us a glimpse of the news that get routinely published in the russian mainstream but never truly become visible to the western world. In doing so, he builds a coherent picture of a country that does no better than the West on many WEF/UN agendas.

There are some excellent articles on the site. If an enterprise is run on a tight budget, has relatively limited reach, requires donations from the readers to survive and you criticise it because the articles are not consistently at some arbitrary standard you’ve set, then you are an odious moron. Not a great combo.

I don’t see the harm if the admins sometimes have strong-ish words to say about a comment or commenter. Why wouldn’t you expect them to express their opinion in the same way you do?

As for the censorship, that’s not my experience of the site.

You see I’ve never resorted to calling people “odious morons” but on the rare occasion, a critical comment of mine got through, I received a whole lot of name calling. I would have thought OG would have limited its censorship to stuff like calling people “odious morons”. As long as a comment is written carefully, follows some logic in its syntax and is free of name calling and personal insults, it ought to get through.

I repeat: OG is where I first found the videos from Wodarg and Sucharit Bhakdi. 10% of the stuff they do is really good and cannot be found elsewhere.
Kudos to OG team for the work they do.

But as one may have guessed, I’m miffed about the censorship aspect which seems to be a new phenomenon, that only started at some point this year. Not sure when.

My suggestion from a financial point of view is: apart from appealing for new funds, maybe also try and reduce expenses by curating the content more ruthlessly and spend less on “moderation”. Even if moderators are volunteers, that is time that could be better spent on other things.

As you can see, you’re only an odious moron, in my opinion, if you were having a dig at content on a site because, despite its clearly limited finances and support, it doesn’t meet your standards. This was based on your ‘90% boring’ comment which was placed under a plea for support from the site.

If you still stand by your comment, I stand by mine.

I wouldn’t care if my comment was removed, it would still be true.

Do remember also that we have Kofi and Subscribestar available. And our direct bank transfer details are pinned at the top. Also, although it’s our desire to move away from PayPal, it’s still available as a donation option for the time being.

We will doubtless smooth out certain wrinkles as we go. Thank you for your helpful feedback 🙂 A2

works better with 8-12 nite lites laid in a circle in a Pyrex oven dish and two terracotta pots one smaller than the other upside down the smaller inside the bigger pot. 100 nite lites that burn for 4 hours each are about £4. i can’t imagine one candle being enough and two pots acts as a better heat sink, this works very well btw
