    Well, at the risk of getting into too much technical detail, I signed up with Patreon and tried to find the guy who I wanted to support (on Youtube) and Patreon needed access to my Google account to do that. I stopped using my Google account quite awhile ago. So one way or another, I'm ensnared. Oh well.

    Regardless of my situation, Patreon seems like a good system of supporting creative people who provide lots of good info. I'm glad that you folks are making good use of it.

    I didn't try to sign up, so that may be why I didn't see a tie-in with either FB or Google.
    I don't have an account with either, so maybe I can't sign up with Patreon?
    I like to support musicians, (and especially those who help the ukulele community), and it sounds like Patreon is working out well for many of you, but this raises more doubts for me. I guess I'll table it for now, and can revisit it later.

    Wow, how do you keep track of 161 email addresses? I have enough trouble keeping up with various work related passwords, along with a few others for personal use.

    It's too bad that we have to have these concerns, but that's the way it is.

    Thanks Booli. I'll ask one last question and then I'll drop the subject.

    Suppose LastPass goes out of business. THEN are you hosed?

    I use Patreon to support artists and instruction of interest to me. I had no issue about the FB or google and did not use those accts to create a Patreon acct.
    I can support 4 or 5 people of interest to me and get tabs for very little per month or per creation depending on how the artist set up their Patreon system. I can see a summary on paypal and cancel at will. Phil Doleman, George Elmes,Choan Galvez.Tyler Austinfeld, Bernadette Echevveria I think it is a GREAT service. No troubles, big bubbles.

    What do you mean by "access" to your google account?

The end of the funnel is the only email address that you need to read from in that inbox. The forwarding addresses cannot send email, as they do not have a 'mailbox' on the server, but are exactly just an alias to a real email address, and the email server handles it all. For remembering passwords, I use a program called LastPass, that has a browser plugin for Firefox (and other browsers).

    Like Booli, I funnel my various email addresses to a couple of main ones, but with Apple Mail, you can add sub addresses so when I reply, I can choose any one of my email addresses as the sender.

    I create passwords using a special multi character pattern so that each is different, but I can easily remember them. I will not disclose my pattern so please don't ask.
