As many here, I am uneasy about selling GH to a corporation (or to a national entity).

What about making GH a club with annual dues? Has this been considered and possibly rejected?

Might want to take a look at this thread:

GH already sold

It was also already considered for that kind of thing to happen. People were asked for donations, people started to donate monthly then stopped. Asking nicely for money didn't work and asking everyone to pay money was met with lots of disagreement.

I've voiced my opinion about all the above before, but my donations have continued after the sale to Massdrop, completely unintentionally on my part as I thought they would be cancelled when the sale was finalised, so I don't think they were taken seriously towards the end.

Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

Yes it was and I remember all that happening.

I'm not surprised they were not cancelled though. That's pretty ****ty they weren't cancelled by iMav prior to the sale finalizing.

Wait a minute... so iMav has still been getting your donations?  That's messed up!
