Transparency Regarding Donations – Part 4


Written July 15, 2017

A few months ago, you may remember that I received a donation from a VPN company (in earnest) and subsequently decided to donate the money to charity so as to remain unbiased.

And it happened once more…  another VPN company (which I believe was honestly trying to contribute and not trying to persuade me or be shady) has donated $50 to the project.  I can’t and won’t keep money when this happens, as always, I want to stay completely unbiased.  This time I have chosen to forward the donation onto The Tor Project – they create and maintain an important tool for activists and those concerned with their privacy and anonimity!



You know who you are, and I thank you for your generous contribution, however I think you’ll understand that I can’t accept it as it would create a conflict of interest with my project.


If you like the project and find my work useful, please consider donating – your generous contributions help pay for the hosting, tools, and time I need to do my research and keep the data fresh.  And if you’re a VPN company who honestly wants to contribute… please don’t tell me who you are!
