Should have thought of this when they made a free website. Just stick ads on it, it's better than looking like a twat asking for money every time the season changes.

He could make billions like Zuckerburg but instead he's not providing further ways for advertisers to spy on people and their browsing habits.

He has made billions. He also founded the FOR profit Wikia.

Oh and I just realized that at first his plea was "If everyone reading this were to donate $5, the fundraiser would be finished today."

In a week that number has risen to $10, as if Wikipedia's quarterly debt has doubled in a week.

Lmao. Well someone is being selfish today. Wikipedia is one of the few websites I would actually donate to. The rest of them can suck a dick.

I don't. I don't need to anyway. Information is free. :)

Don't give Encyclopedia Dramatica money either; they don't actually need it for the site nor are they using it for the site; they're just using ED as a big money cow for personal shit; they're running ED from their PC's, they don't have to pay for bandwidth.

It would almost be as bad as keeping myspace or facebook alive. I'd never pay them to stay alive because they are just wired on popularity bull, I'd only keep them as a way for business meetings.

Ads are not evil. But do you see gigantic ads advertising unrelated stuff in a library?

Thankfully they invented a little thing called an Ad Blocker. So I say, BRING ON THE AD'S!

What I like about is that the first time I saw it, it was "If everyone donated five dollars we could end the fundraiser today" and now it's gone up to 10 dollars, somehow I'm incredibly doubtful that the money they've needed to accumulate has more than doubled, and considering it didn't end on the first day when it was 5 dollars per person, I'm guessing even less people will be willing to donate after they start asking for more.


Seriously, who even reads these things anymore?
