Tech newsletter Platformer, started by Verge alum Casey Newton, is leaving Substack due to its policies and response to pro-Nazi publications using the platform. Newton identified seven Substack publications that showed support for 1930s German Nazis and called for violence against Jews, among other groups. Substack removed one of these and five others from the list. The platform’s co-founders leaked their conversations to another publication. Previously, more than 200 Substack writers wrote an open letter asking the company to clarify its position. On December 21st, Substack co-founder Hamish McKenzie said it would not remove or demonetize Nazi content. Platformer will be migrating to Ghost, requiring no action from readers. Substack did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
