In whether you're willing to donate or not? Is that what you mean, ARW???
Yes, I mean OW has said that he feels donations would make him "obligated" in some way to the donators. I understand why he would feel that way because it might mean he has to run the site in a way he feels that the donators expect the site to be run rather than the way he would like to run it. But we're all adults here, so if I trust the administrators (roughly yourself & OW) and I donate, I'm saying that I'm happy with the way the site is being run and I'm happy to go with whatever decisions you make. In other words it shouldn't be seen as obligating you, but that's just expressing my personal view.
In a hypothetical scenario I donated and the day after you ran up the hammer and sickle and issued press releases calling for the overthrow of capitalism, I'd just piss off and my donation wouldn't matter to me. What's the worst a donator can do other than cause trouble and make you feel a bit bad?
