Sabine has found another way to hold out the begging bowl: she’s now set up shop on Patreon, where she is asking people to support her “creation in progress”, “an engine that re-visualises images as a ‘3d movable object’ and multi-dimensional time series in ‘layers’ – uncluttering Excel charts”.
You know, the same “Smart Knowledge Engine” we’ve mentioned a few times, which basically turns ordinary pixelated computer images into parametric bitmaps…a technology which has only existed for about 20 years now.
Sabine’s been trying to flog this Amazing New Technological Breakthrough for several months now, so it’s probably not all that surprising that she’s taken to Patreon in an attempt to generate a bit of coin.
Patrons won’t just be helping Sabine and her programmer sidekick “ideal Neil” with her “Smart Knowledge Engine”, though; they’ll also be supporting her blogs, videos, and petitions.
Why anyone would pass up an opportunity to fork over their hard-earned cash for that, we do not know.For the low, low price of £5, “Cheering On Support” patrons will receive “regular Patron-only updates, convering (sic): software development [and] interesting data stories”. Ooh, we can hardly wait!
The next tier of patronage, at £50 per month, earns patrons “unlimited access to our Smart Knowledge Engine…This means new functionality [and] new data sets for visualising”. We’ve always wanted new data sets for visualising; it’ll be like Christmas come early!
And for a mere £1,500 per month, some lucky patron could become a “Business Partner in our Smart Knowledge Engine”, earning the right to “help steer the project big time”! Be still, our hearts! After all, who wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to become Sabine’s business partner?
Oh, come on. If it’s good enough for Belinda….
But wait, there’s more!
Anyone with the intestinal fortitude to read through Sabine’s new Patreon page will discover that in addition to a boatload of recycled techno-jibber-jabber, Sabine has included clickable links to a few of her 40+ blogs…and therein lies the rub:
I also lead a social life with meaning, as an online petitioner and McKenzie Friend [lay legal advisor and Public Interest Advocate]. [Oh, is that what they’re calling it these days?—Ed.]
I In that process I exposed organised child abuse online. As a result, I have been hounded as a whistleblower and was arrested seven times, taken through civil and criminal courts and had my state pension cut. I know that this sounds un-believable (sic). But real life is truly stranger than fiction! I’m not finished with either Police or the Pension people yet. Hence this way of appealing for support.
If one clicks on the “social life with meaning” link, one is led to this page, where one finds this: Whoopsies! We are pretty certain that Sabine’s lifetime restraining order, issued at Blackfriars Crown Court in July 2016, quite clearly states that she is not to publish links to this blog:Sabine is specifically instructed
Not to make public in any way, including on the internet by any blog or otherwise including by re-publication of material already made public before the making of this order:
A) Anything relating to any persons set out in paragraph 1 above.
B) Any allegations of cannibalism, sexual child abuse or satanism, at any time at or in relation to Christchurch or Christchurch Primary School.
Despite all Sabine’s wailing and moaning about the unfairness of having been slapped with a restraining order even though her and Neelu’s case for conspiracy to commit witness intimidation was dismissed, the fact remains that she is under a lifetime legal prohibition. She pleaded guilty to an infraction of this order last year, and was given a 12-month conditional discharge, which is still in effect.
Will Sabine’s cack-handed attempt to squeeze a bit of cash out of her credulous supporters result in yet another charge of violating her restraining order? Stay tuned!
