Before I comment, I will say that this is none of my business and I
really don't deserve a voice in this.... except being a potential

David, you seem to think that FSF/credit card payments will only result
in increased "microdonations" that I would agree may not come near the
10% cost. I do think, however, that you may be overlooking the chance of
increased 'larger-than-micro' donations. Do not underestimate the power
of convenience. There has been more than a few occasions where I have
gotten it in my head to go to the support page and donate, got there and
got pissed off at lack of information/options and just gave up/forgot to
follow up
