Re: What are Site Admins allowed to do with donations?

I've personally had this problem when I ran irc networks and decided to accept donations to offset operational costs. The cost of the donation in that case is not worth the headache afterwards from the donor and the potential harm it can cause a site from an integrity standpoint.
I agree......with money comes power (or more problems than it is worth)........just look at how fucked up our election process is because of "contributions" by special interest groups.
