    I suggest you actually read the thread concerning donations. We use these forum stars and gold accounts to circumvent the fact that Plimus doesn't allow non recognized entities to solicit donations, so we just sell silly forum stars.

    Gold accounts are "donations." Gold accounts don't receive extra benefits, just a star by their name saying they've helped out.

    you have to go big (10bucks) you can't be like me and donate 2 bucks twice. When you have a Gold Star you can throw your leverage around and be cured of faggotry or something.

    I'd rather have a gay special icon next to my username than a star when I donate. Oh, and a blowjob.

    I'm sorry but when did making profits and being productive turn into a bad thing? Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm certain that this mentality is the reason the US is in such an economic shitter right now.

    If you're implying there is actually a mentality adverse to wealth and productivity currently existent in the US, than you are gravely mistaken. Economic faggotry may inadvertently suggest such a thing, but no.

    We're all closet commies here at ED. Instead of doing it for the greater good of the state, we do it for the lulz.

    To people who complain about churches taking donations, I laugh. Maybe you understand now.

    (Note: I understand over the top churches led by people claiming Christianity are bad, but they are not Christians).

    Zaiger uses the gold account monies for hookers and blow


    Sherrod degrippo used the money she got from selling ED 1.0 to buy over 9000 cheeseburgers, tons of delicious cake, and stacks of pizza


    I think zaiger's usage of money (hookers and blow) is better compared to sherrod's

    We haven't seen a single dollar in donations since the site went up in April. Who do you think has been paying for it this whole time? Nobody is making money off of this.
