My donation ends where their disrespect for human freedom begins.  (Over 
a decade ago, back on MS, I used to run distributed.net.  However, they 
don't have a freedomware client, or at least didn't back then, and while 
I understand the reasons why -- someone cheating and saying they did the 
work when they didn't, just to get the stats -- that didn't change the 
fact that I wasn't going to run servantware.  But as they say, YMMV.)
