Re: Donate to The Perl Fund
in thread Donate to The Perl Fund
Having said that they will just use the cash for some other Perl related issue, so donating to them is still going to a good cause.
Are you saying that the money I have donated in the past and specifically marked for "Perl Monks Fund" is being used for something other than PerlMonks?
I don't know why, but it really bothers me that the total amount in reserves isn't publicly available. It also bothers me that the money is apparently either just sitting there or being spent on things other than that which was intended by the contributor.
In other words, I don't really much mind how PerlMonks decides to spend the money that I contribute but had I known they weren't going to spend it at all or were going to let it be used for something other than PerlMonks, I would never have contributed. I do not plan to contribute in the future either. I have proposed what I feel is a good use of the money which, for the most part, went unanswered.
