It is easy to control the activists if they get corralled into a small space that never gets outside exposure. Writers and regulars see the posts and thing there is exposure but new visitors who are curious get fed a diet of propaganda.

I am not at all surprised and expected this to happen, there was too little vocal pushback and writers were lulled into a sense of having a safe haven.

Until the platforms and government are open source and open ledger and owned by the people they will ALWAYS be corrupted for some other goal.

For a few brief days SubStack posts were able to gain traction at Xwitter and then some FBI drone gets put in charge and all chance of cross fertilisation and open discourse becomes a simple sham.

Extract from the Epimonitor website, which seems to be a member organisation.

“About The Epidemiology Monitor

EpiMonitor is epidemiology for epidemiologists. We distill and summarize the latest epidemiological news, provide a comprehensive list of job opportunities and collaborations, list upcoming conferences and professional development opportunities to advance careers, and highlights news on epidemiologists. This community is refuge from our broad and often siloed field by providing a space for critical discussions, and opportunities for continued education and training.

EpiMonitor was founded in 1980 by Roger H. Bernier, Ph.D, MPH, who served as Editor and Publisher for 40 years while working at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2022, EpiMonitor was acquired by Katelyn Jetelina, MPH PhD. The office is currently located in Southern California.

It’s possible that she and her husband are good at promotion and all the Epimonitor members subscribed to the substack. She may also have had some help from the CDC.

Nice work!

But ominous -- I'd been hoping Substack would hold out against Overlord pressure..

Domestic abuse and bullying epidemiologist???!!!! Is there a vaccine for that sort of thing?

The proliferation of pompous "scientific" credentials has gotten way out of hand. When I was a teenager, we made jokes about our crappy teenage jobs - a dishwasher at a breakfast restaurant was a "porcelain sanitation engineer," and running the brush chipper for a landscaper made you a "natural matter conversion engineer." We had a lot of fun making up silly stuff like that, but it was a JOKE!

The fact that Substack gave pharma shill Eric Topal an esteemed, featured position years ago (over many obviously better writers) is what told me I should not publish here. I mean, these 'vaxxes' are, truly, killing millions of people, and turning a blind eye to that is, well, murderous.

Substack need to tread very carefully. Involving themselves in these sorts of shenanigans can crater credibility overnight.

A friend and I were speaking about Substack yesterday evening, and she said that she was so glad that Substack existed, given all the censorship that is around us. Cynical as I am, I told her that we can enjoy it while it lasts in its current form, but if it gets too big and influential, the government will surely swoop in and compromise it. (Heck, for all we know, it could BE a government creation.) For the record, I hate thinking like this.

Substack, Gab, all the "free speech" sites are government honeypots to tag and rag on the dissenters. Trust no one

Here's another example of useless and dangerous Covid 'Vax' reality - Airline pilots who were forced by MANDATE to accept the EXPERIMENTAL Covid 'vax' are now far less healthy and susceptible to many more serious health complications that could (and WILL) occur during flights. Myocarditis is rife among Airline staff.

ALL DUE TO THE MANDATED 'SAFE & EFFECTIVE' COVID INJECTION, which is injuring and killing thousands worldwide. All this mayhem and excess death was caused by the DEADLY injections made by companies like Pfizer who dictate a NO LIABILITY CLAUSE if you want to buy their useless but deadly Covid 'cure'. It's simply depopulation.

Example of the inherent dangers we all now face if we choose to keep flying;

"There have been many tragedies this year. Phil Thomas, a young graduate of the Cadiz, Spain, flight training academy, fell ill and died suddenly in April. There were five pilot incapacitations in March including a British Airways pilot who collapsed and died in Cairo, Egypt not long before he was due to fly."

We can either take a rushed course on 'How to pilot a Boing 737' or hope they start to use a PILOT, a Co-Pilot and a SPARE pilot!

All gullible 'patients' that didn't think before participating in an EXPERIMENT, are now all GENETICALLY MODIFIED as was factually covered up by Pfizer and other unscrupulous deadly injection makers.

You should never have allowed them to experiment (Pfuck) with the human body and expect it to get better! It's simply inviting a shorter Life Expectancy or a sudden 'inexplicable' early death.

Had followed her on Facebook early in trying to get a balanced view but had to stop due to the comments section being to hardcore pro vaccine for me. Had a look recently and the number of comments has dropped dramatically with most remaining talking about how luckily they are to have had 6 shots and only had Covid 5 times🤦‍♀️ I had noticed 6mths back that the comments had started to turn against her views. She joined Substack early on and might have moved most followers over to maintain the bubble
