    And up to then Graeber was someone they nigh-unto worshipped as a god.

        I made an obvious joke, saying "okay Yves, now when you have your fund-raiser, Strike Debt will audit that too" or somesuch  (I mean how exactly can SD audit anything?) and Yves was ridiculous enough to pretend I'd threatened her, and used it in her fund-raiser, saying it proved she'd challenged "powerful interests" (!!!) Yes, that's right, me and a bunch of ragtag activists most of whom probably haven't made as much in our entire lives than she makes in a year are supposed to be powerful interests that threaten her.

         Well, it seems to have worked for fund-raising purposes, I guess. All I can say is that people are strikingly naive.

         But when all is said and done, the record will show: for all her dark accusations, the only one who turns out to have personally profited off the Rolling Jubilee is Yves Smith herself.
