I think the strength of the reactions to this decision are insane.
IMO, what Patreon should do to help mitigate the payment processing fee bit is to aggregate the payments from each patron, so each person pays a monthly amount to patreon that covers their pledges plus payment processing fees. Then patreon splits that up among the creators. The current way seems designed to maximize processing costs and ignore efficiency improving opportunities.
