I wasn't sniping, Todd- that was your perception. Just pointing out that there
are (and were) simple, legal, and ethical ways to work around the commercial
restriction, IF there is sufficient interest in accomplishing the goal. I'm not
suggesting that anybody is lazy, incompetent, or whatever, I am wondering-in-the
apparent lack of interest in something that a lot of members have expressed
strong support for. You don't have to move to a different server or any of that
stuff which wraps the whole thing up in layer upon layer of complexity, thus
insuring that it will never happen.

About the "commercial restriction", maybe I still don't understand the problem.
When I visit , I see a printable form which
instructs the user how he/she might send $20 to NANFA. If this is OK, then why
would a PayPal link, or instructions on how to use Paypal (with the correct
email address to use for payment) violate that restriction?

But here I am getting mixed up in NANFA business, which I promised myself never
to do again. I'll just shup up now and let the issue die a natural death:-) Or
maybe now I've beaten it to death. In any case, you guys should do what you
think best.

To me, it's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk
around. That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can you give me a hand?" You can say,
"Sorry, got these sacks."
