Substack Has A Problem

I’m a fan of Substack – but it looks like they might be hitting some issues as they rush to attract famous writers to the platform – and paying them. On the outside it looks good that famous writers use you – but if you are paying them – and not discllosing that – we have an issue.

Beyond that, to pay someone means that you are choosing not to pay someone else – at which point you are becoming a publisher – not a platform and thus arguably support/agree with those writers words and opinions. What then distinguished you from any other publishing vehicle.
