So last year I got fucked over pretty badly by a bunch of LGBT+ activists in my political party.
Tonight I've finally got round to announcing that I'm not going to be hosting their membership database for free any more. Given them 3 months and a list of hosting providers.
I've been doing it since 2010, and it's costing me £30/mo just to keep the VM it's on running.
It's brought up a lot of painful memories, and it's sad... but it's the last step to break away.
@diffrentcolours Love you. We should do something fun/cathartic to celebrate with the £30 for the first month where you aren't spending it on this. :)
