I think the main problem with donations is that almost no one is using the other groups (at least among the other Matronics groups I subscribe to). The AeroElectric list is really the only group that
is active.

Some of my favorite sources on the 'net have
been offering 'add-free-passes' that allow you
to access their content offerings without having
to hat-dance through the weeds . . . I'm really
enjoying it and the cost is trivial.

Let's not abuse time time, talent and resources
Matt has dedicated to this endeavor for all these
years. Come on folks! There ain't no such thing
as a free lunch . . . you can't eat ice cream every
day if you don't feed the cow . . . somebody pays
for it some where along the line.

There are other groups that are quite active; I subscribe to the Kolb
list, and there are possibly more active members there than here.

But even if AEC was the only one, we need to support Matt. I can testify
that the RV guys' virtual abandonment of the Matronics lists for that
other forum was to everyone's detriment, except perhaps the guy that
runs that forum for profit.

I confess that I took the ride for free on these lists for years. I now
regret that and for the past few years, I've tried to support Matt
during each fundraising period. Trying to use 'free' lists like Yahoo
Groups, etc will quickly demonstrate what an asset we have in Matt's
list structure.

My thought has always been, these lists are a great service.
The RV10-List is quite active. I prefer to get my info via
email and not a forum. It guarantees I see it more timely.
And, I figure you either use ad revenue, or donations, but not
both. So, since there are no ads here, I contribute each year.
Matt's been really good at supporting the forums, even
though health issues in the past, and that makes me even
more motivated to donate. I love to give to people who
give likewise.

Ditto.

Aeroelectric and RV10 alone are worthy of $$ support.  However, I missed
the notice this year.  Can anyone give me the vitals so I can donate? 
Thanks in advance.
