These posts are mainly my views and comments about donation issues. They are not always profound and certainly not written in beautiful prose.
It’s ok if you disagree and it’s even ok if you let me know in the comments. It’s not ok if you’re aggressive, abusive or rude. I just won’t respond or maybe even delete without further notice. If you want to connect privately please use the form on the contact page.
I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.
