Outside of trading, I would like to make a donation.  Can someone provide me with their public keys?  I don't expect anything back, I just want to give direct funds to them in order to keep things running smooth.  If anyone else thinks this is a good idea please join me!

A donation is either a token of support or gratitude. Since it's unlikely that the motive is support, may I ask why you feel so gratified?

it is most definitely support though.  I want to contribute to boosting the growth in the most direct way possible.  It won't be very big, maybe 5 btc

Not at all. Just unconventional. It's like someone making a donation to a public figure like Steve Jobs or Warren Buffet.

If you approve of their actions, and you'd like to acknowledge that by monetary incentives, consider paying it forward (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pay_it_forward). You can ask burnside or friedcat how they think that money should be spent.

In this case, I think there is little money can do in order to provide support.

i disagree... i think directly funding their operations would be more efficient to them and more immediate than buying shares.  I don't expect to profit more from the support I'm giving, i just realize that they are experiencing delays of different sorts and would like to help.  I fully understand my btc probably wouldn't do anything, but even it helps 0.00001% it will make me happy knowing that I am showing full support.  I guess it is for my own satisfaction then in an indirect way, lol.  if steve jobs was at the very beginning of something great and i was fully invested in him, damn right i would have donated  Cheesy
