I agree and have no problem with it being available to all.

>I certainly didn't bring this up to create any sort of roadblock, simply to make sure things were discussed and to bring up potential issues from my etic perspective.  I appreciate you clarifying things as it does present them in a different light especially with regard to your previous commitments to evolt.
I didn't think so and double, triple, etc., checking is a good thing to do.

>I still believe that this is not the best way for evolt to support itself but it is setup and ready right now and people have spent time on it; far be it from me to sit back and disparage it from my idle position. Additionally, if we had to pick a host, I think it's good that we picked one we have a connection and history with.
Maybe not the best, but there will be other affiliate programs and other
methods.  Affiliate programs provide a consistantly monthly flow of
funds that can be budgeted with a fair amount of confidence.  They will
fluctuate some, but should be predictable for the most part.

You're welcome David, and all who had questions.  I am still excited
about evolt.org and the  things we are doing.  I want to see them
continue for many years into the future and money is a part of that.
 Let's keep our idealizism and temper it enough to keep prospering.
