    Hi all,

    Bit late with this "quarterly" fundraiser but the long and short of it is if you have a few bucks to spare, please subscribe or send a Paypal donation directly to . We've been doing OK so far largely thanks to your generosity, but we continue to need a couple of hundred bucks or so a quarter to keep what is now the number one philosophy forum on the net afloat. As usual we'll keep you posted with updates on how we're doing.

    Cheers!

    How do you make a Paypal payment directly to an email address?

    You need a PayPal account. There's an option in there to send money to another PayPal account identifiable by the email address. Cheers (Y)

    I always was able to send cash (money order) to Paul and he in turned credited my donation to anyone I wanted to turn Green. If there is an administrator that is willing to trust me with their physical address, I would love to donate. In fact I lost bets to Hanover that Paul was the benificary of. So pm me if you are game.
    Thanks for everything you do and for once again giving the Mötley crew that we are a place to call home.

    Thanks Tiff. Best to PM @jamalrob about this as he's the one who pays the bills.

    I have a PayPal account, but when I click on the link, I just go to my email. All it does is frustrate me and make me think about inappropriate things.

    Either that or a God damn P.O. box so that I can send the money the way it has been sent for 5000 years. You guys a bunch of whippersnappers is what you are.

    Could we put up a small ad from Amazon? I really think its a matter of being pragmatic and have no issues with seeing one quality ad from now and then.

    Anyone?

    Ok, was just a passing thought from an impoverished pseudo philosopher who appreciates this forum.

    I would pay for the whole thing myself rather than see ads. Thankfully, the minority of members willing to cough up money provide just enough to keep it going, not least the large one-off donations we've had from a couple of people.

    Its just a matter of taste then. But since you run and own the place its your call. Having ads run the place just makes the place self sufficient and not reliant on the donation of the few esteemed members.

    Thanks and for the record I agree 100% with @jamalrob on the ads. That ain't who we are.



    Either PM jrob or wait a little and I'll do a visually aided tutorial for you on how to do it the PayPal way.

    How about I send you the money and then you can post it to your PayPal account after your one on one tutorial with Baden?

    You mean I may have to actually do that? Bugger.

    1. Log into your account at PayPal.com, select “Pay or send money” and choose sending money to friends and family.
    2. Enter the recipient's email address ()
    3. Enter the amount and click “Continue”

    I'll add the pictures in a later century.

    Well sure, you made the offer and it would benefit our happy home but in light of Hanover's limited knowledge of PayPal, I think step by step pictures would be most helpful. Don't you? 8-)
    Remember how easy it was to read.picture books? Same idea just a different kinda book.

    A lobotomized monkey could follow those instructions without visual aids. In other words, yes, Hanover probably does need more help.

    It's cheque. And those peas in your awkward dinners you post for everyone to see are not considered a vegetable.

    How do you know what a lobotomized monkey would do? My guess is that you're just guessing and you want everyone here to think you have the balls to actually lobotomize a monkey, but I know you'd probably start feeling queasy like a little baby when you started jamming the steel bar up the monkey's nose into his brain.

    You don't know American, so stop trying to act like some sort of spelling bee queen. I'll have you know that I raised two kids off those mixed pea dinner treats, both of them performing well above the educational standards that have riddled the deep south since cession.

    Send me a pic of your food and see how it feels when I ridicule you. When the shoe's on the other foot, you won't be laughing so hard then.
