Now that I'm back (what a time for me to be out of the country for three weeks!) -- fundraising isn't urgent, but we will absolutely never say no to people giving us money! Unlike Some Other Sites, we don't have advertising and we don't have outside investors, so our only income comes from user payments. So you don't have to start a fundraising campaign for paid accounts in order for us to be able to afford to keep you -- we're happy to open our doors to whoever wants to join us, and we're in good shape to handle traffic increases as they come up -- but if you want to, you'll be helping us to keep the site advertising-free, privacy-conscious, and completely independent of outside influence. I never want to guilt people into paying for their accounts if they can't afford it or if they have better things to do with their money, but if people who can afford it pay us even if they aren't interested in the paid features, it can help us keep the site free for the people who can't!
