Fundraising

GnuPG - User mailing list
A little more than a month ago I said I'd match all donations made to
GnuPG from December 10 to January 6.  I'm happy to report y'all made me
contribute 370 Euros, or about $450 USD.  The money has been paid and
is sitting in GnuPG's account.

I hope this encouraged some of y'all to donate to GnuPG this year.  And
if you missed out, why not consider making a recurring monthly
contribution of your own?  It's a great way to tell the crew thank-you
for all the work they do.

Thanks, all the GnuPG contributors.  I really appreciate it!

The text on the donation page could be tweaked to include the business
address.  That would save a few steps because the web form for Single
Euro Payments Area credit transfers [1] ought to have the address [2]
as the address is required when making payments to other countries
within the Union.

The idea of SEPA is that the account number is sufficient; even the BIC
is not anymore needed nor are banks required to check name or any other
data.  Are you living the the SEPArea?

Yes, but that did not stop the bank's payment web interface from
requiring the name and address for payments to other countries.  For
that matter, their "new" web interface takes over 10 seconds for any
given page to load due to dependencies, but that is a different topic
for elsewhere.

Anyway, thanks for GNUpg.

Okay, I added our address to the SEPA page.

Thanks.

I have never understood why people apologize for doing something they
know is wrong, and then do it anyway.  You could see that starting a new
thread was appropriate; you know that starting a new thread is easy; you
apologized for your inappropriate behavior; and then behaved
inappropriately.  Your apology is not accepted, as it is clearly insincere.

Further, in just the last month and change on this list you've hyped
Bitcoin scams, poorly-designed password managers, sown wild confusion
about TLS and WKD, and now you're trying to raise funds for politically
controversial figures unrelated to GnuPG's mission.

I cannot be the only one here who has noticed your track record.  I urge
you to think long and hard about it, and to turn yourself around.

Perfectly fine, that you don't accept my appology, which were honest of course.
And you can be rest assured that you and Andrew had then complained also
if I had done so.

I really like how you try to paint a picture of me. But everybody knows
what kind of character you are.

I can only think of what kind of gentleman you are.

Try harder next time!

Best regards

Well said.  I didn't want to make even more noise about this, but that's
just what I was thinking.

Kind regards
André

Stefan: Stop such personal insults.  I am pretty sure that there are
quite some folks here who would like to get personal too but don't do
this because this is here is a civilized discussion medium.

In 23 years of this list we had not more than a handful of abusive users
on this list.  You are on the best way to be one on of those few for
whom I had to flip the moderate flag.

Messages to this list consists of public information and what you are
doing is to attack the repudiation of this list.  Stop this!


Shalom-Salam,

   Werner

Political messages not direcly related to GnuPG are off-topic and belong

a mailing list is useful and can be fun, if we all behave civilized.
For this there needs to be feedback about posts. And when done well, the
feedback is respectful and explains things.

Stefan, I believe Robert and André, while being brief, gave you feedback
and explanations. It took them some personal time and efforts.
I agree with them in: Some of your posts were over the line (as others and
them pointed out to you.) Their explanations are a chance to reflect and
learn, so we all have a nice list here!

Regards,
Bernhard

I told you to behave civilized and not like that guy most US people are
glad not to be anymore represented by him.

I will set you to moderation for two weeks.
