Substratum Removes Team Page and Whitepaper From Its Website

April 28, 2019

Following up on a post from last week, it appears Substratum has completely removed the team page from its website – it now resolves to a 404 error. Substratum has also removed its whitepaper from the website, leaving only the technical paper available for download. In response to questions surrounding this sudden development, Substratum CIO Abram Cookson posted the following explanation on Telegram.

Substratum’s Community is a Cesspool →

April 28, 2019

Brad Edward Wolfe (707bwolf):

Btw the original reddit post is by William McKenzie who is a known white nationalist neo-nazi based out of an Aryan nation chapter in Kentucky and he actually got this article from Brian Li who is a known pedophile that had a baby with an underage girl in Japan but apparently 13 year old girls are legal in Japan.

Substratum Removes Link to Team Page From Its Website

April 24, 2019

Yesterday, I noticed Substratum quietly removed the link to its team page in the footer of its website. After a quick search through, it appears Substratum removed the link sometime between March 31 and April 13. I’ve reached out to Substratum regarding the removal of the link, but haven’t received a response. Considering the lackluster quality of the project’s communications department, I don’t expect to receive a response unless the team is in the mood to make another round of excuses. Since Substratum isn’t interested in responding to inquiries, let’s engage in some light speculation.
