Hi Lach,

(1) Exactimundo!  ... wanna draft a first rev at that "evolt sponsorship code of ethics"?   ;-)

(2) The billing issue was in reference to 'installments' - e.g. some fine company says "I'll sponsor for six months if I can pay a month at a time."  We greedily say yes ... and they stop paying after month 4 ... now what?

(Who always seems to come up with 'loophole' examples ... hmmm ... must be a devious devil!)

I don't think it's too hard to define. Something like a nazi group is
obviously out, whereas a church or business should be fine, as long as they
understand the evolt sponsorship code of ethics.

Don't provide them with whatever until we receive the money. Simple as that.
