Polygon and the Verge are both Vox Media outlets. Vox workers are currently attempting to unionize and they've just announced a work stoppage. Don't support Vox until the union gets their contract and their demands or met. That means if you support BDG and Pat and all yr other polygon crushes then you won't go watching their polygon vids until Vox Union announces their victory

@starkatt @shel thinking about how Jon Bois talked about Dallas fans during the strike in "Randall Cunningham Seizes the Means of Production"

something about them asking striking players for autographs, not even realizing they were undermining them by being there

hopefully this strike goes a lot better than that one

@CoronaCoreanici @shel IIRC they occasionally do videos for them on a freelance basis now but they aren't official Vox employees.

@Zero_Democracy @CoronaCoreanici @shel in the outro of the most recent Monster Factory they said that future episodes will only be on their own channel, not Polygon, so maybe not even that anymore Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

@shel Not a problem since I haven't read them in forever. However, if they do get victory I'm going to make a point of resubbing to everything again.

@c0debabe I don't think you need to unsubscribe just hold off on visiting the website or watching the videos

@shel (in the chance you'd know) Would it help writing an email saying "I am a regular follower of Vox Media in general and these people in particular, and I support the strike and will not be engaging with the products until the union is satisfied"?

@gaditb sure I guess but the person checking the email likely isn't at work right now :V

@shel Has Vox Union put up a longer post anywhere that I could read?
