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.)
