I’m absolutely flabbergasted that this wasn’t something brought to all creators attention before being implemented, that now only patrons and creators can comment on public posts, period. Is this not interfering with our relationship with our fans? The thing you folks claim you don’t want to interfere with? Well you’re doing it again. I don’t know how many times one can say “one size does not fit all.”
You’ve absolutely messed up my interactions with not only the creators I follow and actively participate in conversations with OR the few followers that actually comment on my public posts and SHOULD be able to post on my public posts because some of it IS for all my followers to participate in!!
Please make this feature OPTIONAL. I can understand that some folks might get spammed but is that not what the block function is also for? I NEED to have access to have conversations with my followers. This needs to be optional.
If need be, make the block functions more robust to handle spam/abuse safely for creators. My followers shouldn’t be shafted, especially when I sometimes really need their feedback.
