very sad re: bandcamp because it seemed like they were going to be good ones but at the same time my recommendation of "don't base your livelihood or anything that you care deeply about on privately owned companies' platforms" seems to still hold strong.

maybe that means it's on us software people to provide good alternatives for people.
