Now that the store is fully stocked with AIDS and CDs about tigers (wtf?), you've officially reached the depths of sites like Infowars, and no-one will trust your analysis.

Congrats, I guess?

That's a little harsh, I think. None of the discussion I've seen on this site even comes close to the level of Alex Jones and his like.

Aids?
The staff get to sell their own personal projects in there. I won't deny them that. They work hard on the site. They deserve to make some money.

Every site out there sells something, whether it be by ads, selling their intel, or by selling actual goods. Why are we denied this?

Or PBS bolstering the reputations of rich families or foundations willing to fund and support a frontline or nova program, and a tax writeoff. It's all really the same

I've thought about turning DWS into a registered non-profit so donations at least can be tax deductable, but the hassle is enormous.

No doubt plus probably a lot more scrutiny.
