Wikipedia has this ad when you open up a page by them. Would you donate? How much?

P.S. I wouldn't

I used to give $15 whenever it popped up because Wiki got me through law school.

I use it constantly, it's my brain extension. It's the reason my apparent IQ drops 10 points every Shabbos... :P

Why not donate?
It's a service you use, what's wrong with giving them $3 to continue providing that service for free with no ads? It also helps keep Wikipedia free from corporate sponsors and special interests.

Very valid reason to donate, but still, every online fundraiser gives me the jitters about security of my cc info. Call it paranoia.

Never understood why people were so worried about CC security. You have no liability if your CC is stolen. Just wait a day to card a new card in the mail
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Unless you have that card linked to lots of sites/stores. So you can choose one card to be only for "risky" online purchases. You can even give it a low CL.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Because you still need to make sure there is no theft in order to get reimbursed.
If you don't check over every single item on your bill you can be affected.

Huh?
No, if you try to go over your CL (or if someone else does) your purchase will be declined.

That's only on a debit card.
Part of the ddf membership requirements is to never ever spend on a debit card.
