When we open donations, you will be able to pay directly to Hubski without the circles you spoke about. Don't worry.

If you don't mind, I'm still confused about point number two. I can rephrase if need be.

Hope you aren't still on whatever island, I'd hate to think you're wasting your time there thinking about this shit.

No, I'm not still in Curacao. I'm fighting with a custom PHP script to get URL rewrites so this lady can have her thousands of insane custom URLs with no pattern whatsoever without opening up a security hole from hell and having to manage her shit for her.

Save me. I'd much rather be thinking about this.

Rephrase and I'll get to it whenever I finish this. If I don't return, I've drown myself in a bucket of whiskey and I apologize in advance for leaving you hanging.

Okay, so, my main confusion --

Route 1: me, you and tng all donate $10 to hubski via bitcoin or paypal. hubski gets $30.

Route 2 (the current thing): me, you and tng all choose to donate $10 by buying into this currency circulation game. hubski gets nothing immediately. Now assume we're the only three users on hubski, and we all have our "percentage donated to hubski (as opposed to donated to the commenter)" setting at less than 100 percent to hubski. Thus, some part of the $30 will never go to hubski, no matter how many times we comment. Right?

Maybe I'm wrong, but if all of the above is true, this is essentially a pointless tax on donating. (Unless enough people's settings are on "100 percent $$ to hubski" ... in which case why not just donate normally.)
