Yes, I know better.

But please read my sentence again, Martin. Actually, read my entire mail again.

I made it clear it's how *I* feel. YMMV.

Your experience?
Maybe it's a cultural thing then.

I'm not against putting up a list of donors; only against waving those 
amounts in my face. What you pay for the Rackshack hosting for a month, for 
instance, seems like a relatively small amount, but here it can feed a 
family for an entire month.

This is definitely news to me.
