I can't believe the number of people who DON'T want the Wizard to keep their donations. That just seems kinda tacky, IMHO. Hell, one member has even come up with ways to donate the Wizard's own money. Geez.




Yea, it was me ASSHOLE. Mike offered to donate the money I gave to him back. I didn't expect it back, nor did I want it. BUT when he offered it to charity, I am more than willing to give it to a charity I like. You have a problem with that???


TACKY???I don't think so, nor does Mike. Ask him if you are not sure.

I gave the money to someone I RESPECT and will continue to respect.

He offered me the money back and I offered to give it to a LV charity I give too. How much do you give??

I hope you can beat me, but deserving charities deserve it. I have multiple nights per year at my restaurant for local charities, what do you donate?

And I can prove it. You?



+1 Me too...
Here is the message I sent Mike along with 100 bucks. I will take the money back too and donate it to a charity that needs it. I am very happy for Mike and proud to be apart of this site. Good job Mike! Congrats!

B9 is a total troll.



Personal insult -- three-day suspension.

Terapined, I like you, but the rules apply to everybody. Remember that the Goddess of Justice wears a blindfold.

BT9 is a total asshole and adds nothing to the site.

Again, the blindfold thing.

I haven't seen this many suspensions since the Hot Blonde Challenge.

I'd like to add that there are legitimate reasons to, and not to, ask for a refund of a donation. For those who gave for the reason that I was singing the blues about money, I prefer to give the money back or donate to it charity. However, I have no problem accepting a donation from somebody who is grateful for the service I've provided and simply wants to show a little appreciation. It is a personal choice and should be nobody else's business.

I resent that I am being made to feel ungrateful for donating $100 to a complete stranger just because he asked for it, and that I then accepted his unsolicited offer to return it. No good deed goes unpunished, I suppose. Fuck you.

Um...I didn't even have either one of you in mind when I wrote my msg. (I was gonna state who I DID have in mind, but that wouldn't serve any purpose at this point)

Pretty sure Beethoven doesn't consider being called a troll an insult. It's possible troll rules require ignoring the accusation though as the optimal defense for a troll.

Let me also say that I'll accept as an option that anybody may insist that I keep the money. For example, sometimes fans will buy me dinner or drinks as a show of thanks for my sites. Such offers I have happily accepted in the past. Neither will I insist that a donation be forwarded to charity if somebody wishes to consider their donation as a pure gift for the value received from my sites, regardless of my net worth.

Still, any donations where I don't get any direction what to do will be donated to charity.



My mild criticism included reading the Wizard's statement (i believe initial statement) that he would give back donations if asked. The way it was written suggested to me that it was beyond reproach to ask in the first place, and that giving them back was a chore necessary to appease annoying complainers. Just how it came off to me.
Acknowledging that criticism was valid (which contradicts those who attacked me, so logically, they are attacking the Wizard's opinion--'road paved in good intentions'), and making an effort to give back the donations without solicitation from the givers...I think this new statement is more like the Wizard, and does not deserve criticism from anyone.
