In fairness, that is a different situation in my mind. If people directly help you pay for something, I believe they should have some say in how things are run. If they help pay indirectly, like purchasing videos that Paul made or something, I don't believe that entitles anyone to have any say.

I often wonder what would happen if it didn't. If it was 100% community funded.
But for now, we do the best we can with what we have. Moderating is a soft science and every situation is unique.

That goes along with my thoughts, that the diet high in carbs does limit intelligence.

A few of us from the village worked together to build a rocket mass heater and bring it out to the camps to install in one of their winter structures and help keep the people warm while using far less firewood. I set up a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for the materials and a trailer to bring it all out there. Here is the link: https://www.gofundme.com/rocket-mass-heater-at-standing-rock
