    Thought so but wanted to check. Paid up, thanks for the clarification!

    PayPal the amount of money to [email protected] (or you can use this PayPal link)
    but that link is to pay "[email protected]:". Which is correct?

    I would really like to be a supporter - unfortunately I am not willing to use PayPal at all - would you consider something like paysafecard ???
    If so I would be glad to get a message and become a supporter ...

    $25 USD sent. Thanks Michael, for the large amount of daily content. It's the first site I check every evening, when I get home from work

    For me the ideal model these days is free access to content with no ads for everyone + a patreon.

    I'll happily pay if you drop the ad-based business alltogether.
    Again, I'm not telling you what to do, just expressing preference. If you paywall this site, I'll move on, no hard feelings.
    What do you think of the previous proposal? That would allow to keep open access.

    Oh and also, have a progress bar towards a funding goal, something simple that you could set monthly based on the sum of subscriptions, Liberapay, Paypal, etc
    And there could be goals like removing advertising past a certain point. You have a target demographic that should be receptive to this.

    Suggestion to Michael: have a **small** "side pop up" that asks for funding.[1]
    Via either premium or pay what you want on Liberapay. This shouldn't be too intrusive but should push more people past the tipping point. And promoting "recurring pay what you want" via Liberapay should appeal to more people for which a premium subscription (35 USD/year) is too much. (depending on the country, the income and the number of things that someone already fund)
