Hopefully they remember to include a minimum donation; it'd be an awful shame if the fees and such made the effective actual donation a negative amount.

It was awfully generous of Fark to turn every month of remaining  barefark into farks2give.
But I don't badger folks anymore. Very few users want TF these days.

How bout you? Three days left....

Oh Lord. The clout chasing is going to escalate further now that morons know they can milk money out of people. Turning Twitter from a cesspool to cessier cesspool

Tip jars can be creative. The best one I've seen had two cups next to each other, colored red and blue and labeled "Girls" and "Guys." Then, a sign right above said, "Who tips better?"

Ok, now find a tweet worthy of a tip.

Narrator: 280 characters aren't worthy of a tip.

TF really just seems to be a mechanism to help pad the stats of people who flood the site with submissions. It seems to be why there are so many submissions from a few shiatty sources all at once.

BAT is a cryptocurrency currently trading around $1.50

If I have to stand in line to order you aren't getting a tip.

Yes, I'm aware it's a cryptocurrency. I was just abusing an apt Oatmeal joke.
But the actual usefulness of the Brave browser evades me.
Why would anyone adopt an unproven browser that promises personal data security; when their entire business plan is to monetize your data? The only difference (according to them) is you get to choose which sites receive the monetary boost.
I call shenanigans...
1) They're still collecting your data.
2) If in the future their current business model doesn't turn a profit, they'll just sell your data to the highest bidder anyways. {see Facebook}
3) They're actually getting you to designate which sites (and therefore ads) appeal to you. Which makes it much easier to create personalized ads.
4) F*ck these startup cryptocurrency companies. They aren't meant to make you rich. They're 21st century ponzi schemes. No different than NFT's.

These sites prey on folks hoping to get ahead or rich quickly. It rarely works out in their favour.

*sigh* alas, no. I have so much work on my plate that needs tending to that TF is going to become obsolete. I'm really grateful about having it during the past year, but a bunch of projects popped up, and I really need to keep my nose to the grindstone.

So, thanks for gifting me TF on the year it actually helped me!! ;)
