Transparency Regarding Donations – Part 2

Written Jan 5, 2017

About 6 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.

Well, it happened again!  Another VPN company (which I believe was honestly trying to contribute and not trying to persuade me or be shady) has donated $100 to the project.  As before, I have donated the money to charity!  This time I have chosen the Free Software Foundation – they help educate people about free (as in freedom) software and play a crucial role in influencing the industry to stay transparent and open.

Once again, 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!
