ah you should have mentioned that...
no i don't think it offends, infact few of the site i download stuff from, they get 1200$ per month (mostly) through donation, for there maintainence
A lot of them feel they get so much from a site, donating 1-2$ won't cost them anything...as they become so close to the community like we have it here.
if its there feel free to donate or not then i think its a good idea...even for this forum, i would be glad to donate if i am sure its secure...
