That screws the entire *point* of the donation wall which is to 
recognise donors. Being anonymous is at the discretion of the donor, 
although I think it's probably fair to be more up-front about the 
option to be anon.

Believe me, the most successful fundraising campaigns tend to do this 
and do it *extremely* effectively.

One thing I *haven't* proposed (and don't intend to) is an even more 
effective way of recognition, which is to tier the donors based on 
size/frequency of support.

Now playing on iTunes: "I'm Sorry" by Hothouse Flowers from 'People' - 
a hit from way back in 1988
