I'm gonna use this admirable and principled post to sprinkle a little salt:

    We haven't gone the "selling our users" route, and we aren't going to. If there's not a better way, then maybe there shouldn't be a way.

We, the users, paid for hosting last year. That rectangle at the upper right got filled. And I know y'all were so busy doing important things that it never got acknowledged, but can we bloody acknowledge it?

This discussion is always about funding and sustainability and we fuckin' met your pledge drive, yo. And we never even got our victory lap.

Message received. I'll get to work on that well-deserved victory lap.

Also, when I hover over the little rectangle now, it still reads "Hubski 2017 Funding Goal." Not sure if you're the guy to talk to about that, or if it's an error on my end, but I figured mentioning it would be helpful.

By the way, are there other ways of supporting the site, like Patreon, Flattr, Brave Payments?

I've been considering Brave. insomniasexx and I were just discussing it the other day.

I would totally be down with a Patreon, since I already support creators there and you can have people pay what they want on a monthly basis. I wonder if there are more people who may also be up for that!
