I was notified this morning that somebody donated $5 for Cites & Insights via PayPal.
I responded with a thank you.
It was a sincere thank you.
Consider: If everybody who reads C&I donated $5 for each issue they read, I’d have more revenue than I used to have when it was sponsored.
If everybody who reads it donated $5 for each issue they found worthwhile, I’d presumably have some significant fraction of that.
Even a few people donating means that some people find it sufficiently worthwhile to pay something.
So: Thanks. I really do appreciate the $5.
