Damnit. Sorry I'm on so late today but it's been pretty busy. Anyways, let me clarify some little things about the petition.
1. I asked blue if i could do this. I'm glad he posted it up, I honestly didn't think he would cuz alot of us regulars have been talking about this for years. It does not smell of a hostile takeover, petitiononline was the just the easist thing I could set up.
2. If you read the petition you'll notice I tried to word it so that this wasn't meant as a "donation". The fact is, I love this site, and would just like to pay blue for his service over the years. Period. You donate to charities, I've always looked at this site as a business, and since I doubt Blue would ever move to subscription, this is the best thing I could think of. My payment I'd consider a voluntary fee for services provided.
3. Notice also how it in no way asks anything of Blue or the site, i don't care if he has a million ads or if my name is green on the board. He can do what he wants with this site, it's his site. I'd just like to give the man some cash because that's how I feel about his service.
Yes, he does has tshirts up, but I don't really want one and thats sort of a waste of capital considering I could just give money.
Anyways, please sign the petition if you can. Guess that's about it. Much love to all the regulars out there who got all this running.
Key word here is voluntary. I'm not saying everyone should be paying blue money or he needs money or any other rubbish. I just would like to see the ability for users to do so if they feel so inclined.This comment was edited on Sep 19, 23:11.
