I can send you my address but I am uncomfortable posting it here on the site. We also got another $50!

Can somebody clue me in on how to send some money that doesn't involve setting up a Paypal acct? I know you can use a regular credit card that is processed through Paypal(I do it all the time on Ebay), but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to do it through their website.

Otherwise, an address to send a check will work.

If you want, send me the amount you're going to contribute (email), and I'll include it with my money order - and all you'll need to do is send me whatever you're going to contribute (I trust you) with my money order. That way, we only send him one money order to cover two donations.

Deal?

If anyone else wants to pile on (to this contribution), let me know (and I'll send you my snail-mail address for the check - and I too HATE PayPal). I trust you to be honest with me, but if you short or screw me (while I front the funds), I WILL hunt you down!!!

I have not been on the site in too long. I understand you are collecting funds to become 503C (whatever that is) but am wondering why this is being done.

Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

All the best,

Glenn, thank you very much for the reminder, since I need to get a Money Order off to CC ASAP (but I've been remiss since my wife has been ill), but it reminded me of something I needed to do!!! And for THAT, I THANK you (for reminding me)!!! :D

I plan on turning it into a non profit for the benefit of all the members. That way we are open and transparent and the Chris incident will not be repeated. Also, if any of the founders leave the site is not subject to the whims of anyone else as happened to Kim's site several times.

Mike, if it isn't too late I would like to donate $25. You can send me your snail mail on Facebook or Gmail.

Ok, instead of a Non Profit which would require any board member to not remain anon the lawyer suggests a Trust. So it looks like we will set up a trust and before the trigger is pulled I will post the regulations that govern it for y'all to review. Then its the GC Trust that will own the domains and the site. It will also pick up the tabs for both. It will cost a bit every year to maintain so we need to either

1. Accept Ads. ( I would not prefer)
2. Raise funds the old fashioned way. I am still working on operating costs yearly for the trust.

Thoughts?
