<p>This website is in its final days.&#160; Autumn has stated this in comments here.</p> <p>Funding has run out.&#160; Autumn has also stated that if this website needs some major funding to fix, it will be gone.</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>People, just so you know.&#160; If you want this website to continue, you will have to convince Autumn to change her funding model (something rather than her family donations which have run out).</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>With her adherence to basic free-speech values, advertisements is probably not a good fit.&#160; That leaves only two options:&#160;</p> <p>1) Subscription</p> <p>2) Donations (Patreon)</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>Both of these Autumn has dismissed out of hand leaving this site without any economic future.&#160;&#160;</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>Just so you know.&#160;</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>Autumn, I know I have posted two articles back-to-back.&#160; If you feel you have to delete an article, please delete this one.&#160; I will be offline for a number of days which is the reason I posted both here now.&#160;</p> <p>I believe this conversation MUST happen now.&#160; It is your website but there are many people who find value here.&#160; It would not be fair if this site just went offline, without warning, for people who have invested much time and effort in posting their work.</p>

Autumn hasn't communicated that yet. I'm one of the oldest participants here, and most people know me, whether they agree on my POV's in gerneral or not. I would be sad about it really, because I've had found many friends here, some even I've met personally. I would be ready to pay my share to keep it going for sure, but it would have to be an affordable amount.
 
Autumn has my mail.
 
BTW: If we can make it free of pub banners, even better.

BTW2: I have no credit card. I don't use such stuff. I would have to send cash to an indicated address by mail :-)
