Please Help Support BBI - Annual Contribution Campaign

Eric from BBI : Admin : 8/1/2017 9:06 am
As long-time readers know, this is my annual effort to supplement ad revenue in order to keep the site going. If most readers can give just a bit, that would be a great help.

Thank you for your support!!!!

The new video reports are great adds a nice dimension where
as we don't have to focus on just the stars and here how
the lesser known are progressing .
Remember when I couldn't wait to get my Giants News Weekly
I wish I could find a way to access to archives probably
does not exist I did have a few letters publicized in it
Thanks Eric

my typically meager donation will be upped to $1,000 this year if you permanently re-instate political threads.

You've stated that you axed them in part due to BBI'ers who threatened to withhold donations had you not done so.

Not a demand of course (it's your business), or a threat. Merely me "voting" with my wallet as a ying to the delicate safe spacers' yang. $1k is in my Paypal ready to go.

Good luck with the campaign.

Not a day goes by where I don't thank God that I stopped allowing political threads. My decision is affected, but not driven, by financial considerations.

It's a quality of life issue for me.

But if you want to take into account financial considerations, allowing political threads would certainly drive up traffic and potentially dramatically increase ad revenue. But again, it's not worth it.
Understood, fair enough  
Overseer : 8/9/2017 11:57 pm : link
I imagine, for instance, the universities (who I've seen you criticize) that mostly acquiesce to their sanctimoniously PC student bodies likewise do not want to deal with headache(s) and simply want limited controversy coupled with the tuition checks rolling in.

Business decisions all.

Donation sent.

I spend less time here than I used to, because politics has become my newest sport. Nevertheless, I heartily concur with Eric's decision to remove politics from BBI. Too many people here couldn't control themselves over politics (including Eric, btw), and this past year would have been spectacularly worse for BBI than anything that came before. Heck, people are getting divorced over politics. People are being taken out of wills over politics. That never happened before at anything close to the current rate.

Could it be controlled on BBI? Not hardly.

Can't resist agreeing with you about "not worth it." Not if the contribution amount proffered were raised to a considerably higher number. It isn't and wouldn't be -- even if I sometimes wonder about how and where the line is drawn.

Late, but check is in the mail.

Being a Giant Fan wouldn't be the same without BBI. Keep coming back every year. I have been really impressed with Sy'56 and gidiefor's contributions. Thanks to Eric and everyone who makes this site possible.
Dropping check in the mail tomorrow am.

You should be receiving thank-you e-mails from me if I have your e-mail address too.

via my wife's Paypal. I don't have a Paypal since I don't do much online shopping, so I used hers for this as I felt it was important to donate with how much I use this site. Figured it was better then sending a check in the mail.

Dave, I probably just sent a thank-you note to your wife. If that was you, my bad.

Yep, just checked her email. No problem, Eric. Might be able to donate next month, as well.
These are exciting times at BBI

Sent check this AM, it would have been more $$  
ColHowPepper : 8/19/2017 10:41 am : link
but what prevents me from upping it is that BBI is without doubt the "dirtiest" site I frequent on the I. If I stay on BBI on any visit for more than 15 minutes, it routinely crashes my browser. This is across all browsers, irrespective of the device I am using.

First to occur is slowdown of loading, and I then know the fix is soon in, and then, inevitably, the browser will freeze, then the devices up and down buttons will freeze, and ultimately crash the device. Cleaning browser history does not help. Changing browsers does not help, because ultimately the slowdown impacts all tasks, even mail.

Without fail.

Eric, Gary, et al., please clean it up for a better user experience.
