Do you expect donations? Hell, no. If I could make money writing this stuff, sixty guys would immediately pop-up and ninja-loot my traffic.
Would you appreciate a donations? Yep, I sure would. Who wouldn’t?
What if I’m broke? I also make money with the ads. If you want to show your appreciation, surf around and click away. Three clicks is a little less than a dollar, four clicks is usually just a little more than a dollar.
Where will my money go? Papa needs another month of Warcraft! And another clip of ammo in Entropia. And another MMORPG gaming mag. It’s an addiction, and I needs my fix! Keep in mind that I don’t slay virtual mutants and dragonkin for pleasure, but for the children.
What children? The virtual children I slaughter after the mutants and dragonkin. At least, I think that they’re children. They might be gnomes. All I know is that I love the sight of small, defenseless creatures fleeing before my beautifully rendered attack sequences.
Isn’t it morally reprehensible to collect financial compensation for re-hashing the content of other sites, only to indulge in a culture of non-cathartic, psychologically damaging virtual violence? Wow. My readers usually don’t have this kind of attention span. Honestly, you may be on the wrong site. Try heading over to Mother Jones or Salon. This page is part of The Great Geek Manual, a site devoted to stuff like Harry Potter themed double entendres and tech support jokes.
Dude! Why are you asking for donations? This site is amateur hour! Ummm… that’s not a question. And I know that you aren’t actually thinking “amateur hour” to yourself, but this site is PG-13. If you don’t like the site, just don’t donate. This page is just here in case some generous reader suddenly finds a buck burning a hole is his pocket. It’s not as if I think that I’m the best thing since Slashdot, or anything.
What if I just want to pay you to shut-up? I would indeed take that money. What can I say? I’m not proud. Let’s say ten bucks to not blog for a week, and another ten to actually backpedal and erase what I’ve posted for the last week.
