I&#39;m all for the donation-bot idea myself. Takes dollars, doesn&#39;t have to be transparent. I think the temptation for petty theft would be less if the method of extracting money is non-obvious.<div><br></div><div>-Kelly<br>

One by itself would be enough.<br>

Just one dropbox also theoretically motivates people to see how quickly<br>

&gt;      &gt;         Hey All,<br>
&gt;      &gt;<br>
&gt;      &gt;         Paypal mysteriously dumped my noisebridge subscription<br>
&gt;     back in<br>
&gt;      &gt;         August,<br>
&gt;      &gt;         and I have been most un-excellent in not dealing with it<br>
&gt;     until now.<br>
&gt;      &gt;         Yea, though I have walked in the valley of false-slack,<br>
&gt;     without a<br>
&gt;      &gt;         place to hack near my favorite taquerias, I shall fear<br>
&gt;     the evil of<br>
&gt;      &gt;         paying work. This very night, I have spent the all of<br>
&gt;     five minutes<br>
&gt;      &gt;         necessary to re-pent, and I have felt the excellence well up<br>
&gt;      &gt;         inside of<br>
&gt;      &gt;         me, just like the sexual innuendo of your choice. I am<br>
&gt;     here to say<br>
&gt;      &gt;         that you too can realize this transcendent experience! Simply<br>
&gt;      &gt;         look at<br>
&gt;      &gt;         your paypal transaction history, and perform some basic<br>
&gt;     arithmetic.<br>
&gt;      &gt;         Pay no attention to false plastic idols who would dare<br>
&gt;     suggest that<br>
&gt;      &gt; &quot;Math is hard!&quot;, although it is purely your prerogative as to<br>
&gt;      &gt;         whether<br>
&gt;      &gt;         you would also like to go shopping.<br>
&gt;      &gt;<br>
&gt;      &gt;         Many demons do inhabit the tubes of paypal, and if a<br>
&gt;     treasurer type<br>
&gt;      &gt;         were to set up a wepay or google checkout account, that<br>
&gt;     could be<br>
&gt;      &gt;         most<br>
&gt;      &gt;         excellent alternative. Meanwhile, I shall battle the<br>
&gt;     demons of<br>
&gt;      &gt;         my own<br>
&gt;      &gt;         laziness along side you all.<br>
