Thanks. Is there anything quirky for the PayPal transaction, like a category to pick? I remember some fundraiser to which I donated having issues about tax being charged if you didn't enter it correctly.

Not that I know of. It doesn't look like anyone else has been charged a fee so far. However if it asks you, you can try marking the payment as Personal → Gift or Personal → Other.

May I ask what I did to invite the hostility? I was just explaining where we got our prizes and I see no problem with that. I didn't mean to offend anyone.

Of course you can ask. Don't let anyone ever tell you can't ask.

Because we want to?


When you say things in that way it infers that the answer was obvious and that I'm in some way unintelligent. Was it not meant to sound like a smart ass remark? Given our previous confrontations I just presumed that's how you meant it. Was I wrong?

Here's the John Madden play-by-play.

  • I mention that if we exceed our fundraising budget, one use for the extra funds could be shipping future giveaway prizes
  • DonHarry asks what sort of giveaways we've had
  • A few of us describe past giveaways, and Jared mentions that some have been items from his personal collection
  • DonHarry asks why you would ever give away items from your collection
  • Jared thinks DonHarry is implying that doing so would be stupid, and replies "because we want to?"
  • DonHarry thinks Jared's answer is implying that DonHarry is stupid for asking

Seems like a classic case of common internet miscommunication causing people to take things too personally.

At least now Jim can't say Josiah never did anything for the site.

He's worth at least a nickel, now.

I'd give, but I have $2.30 to my name until next Thursday, and that's my emergency Ramen money.
If you haven't met the mark by next Thursday, I'll donate whatever else is needed.
