in thread Diffusing Knowledge and Fortune to the Less Wise and Less Fortunate Monks.

I cam accross this link in an email this week. Basically it will set up a program to allow you to donte money to whomever set this up. Most credit card places have a lot of garbage to go thru regarding cc donations/intellectual property,but this might be worth it. I think it will pretty much allow donations to be taken for this cause. I know it is from amazon and the bad taste that that they bring to a lot of people involved with opensource/programming- but i think this cause is worth it. Is there some way we can put this ask for dollar idea on a website to tie in with merlyn's reduced rate?

    The question is whether the cause justifies giving Amazon money--something I can't answer for everyone, but note that Amazon is not doing this out of the goodness of its heart:

    "The Amazon Honor System does not charge registration fees, set-up fees, or fixed participation fees. We do, however, charge transaction fees based on the amount of money you receive. The fee schedule is very simple. For each payment you receive, we will charge $0.15 plus 15% of the total transaction amount. The person making a payment is not charged any fees at all."

    Notes:
    'Amazon Honor System' is a trademark.
