Done. Now all that's left is to wait.

Sweet! Did you ask if they would post an address on their website for future bitcoin donations?

I haven't asked this yet and don't want to annoy if you already asked.
Nope. My email was simply about the mybitcoin account.

Done.

"I hope you decide to offer a bitcoin donation address on your website. There are many more people who haved pledged additional coins if this is offerred, and it provides a convenient method for future bitcoin donations.
 
Thanks, and let me know if you have any problems with the account!"

If I hear back that they're actually going to do this, of course, I'll post and let you know!

*Checks emal* No, still nothing.

Btw, I'm not sure if they feel the need to reply and say anything. I mean, I didn't specifically request a reply as in "please tell me what your plans are". I just left it on their plate.

But I agree that I'm dying, just as you are, wondering if they're going to post a Bitcoin donation box on their website or not. They may not even know yet -- maybe they're talking about it, or maybe they just want to liquidate the coins.

Any ideas on the course of action at this point? Should I wait a month, and if they don't post one, then ask specifically what their plans are? I feel that we've done everything possible to enourage them, so any additional bugging would just be bothersome.

Pestering them about a Bitcoin button is not a good idea. It was a gift, not a bribe.

Just give them the Bitcoins and follow up in two weeks.

Indeed...what to do.

Unfortunately, I lack facilities in learning and discovering social norms.[1]


----
1. That's a bit of an exaggeration. Let just say that I have asperger syndrome and I am slow to catch on as far as the social game goes.

Do I understand correctly? mizerydearia is our spokesman, and received the following from an EFF rep:

Quote
Hi Aaron* and Mizery! It appears that the original message didn't make it to me (I get the membership@eff.org  messages), but we just heard from both of you yesterday. Smiley We're very happy to hear that EFF has such support in the Bitcoin community! What is the recommended course of action for us? Once raised, it seems that Bitcoin currency can be exchanged via PayPal or bank transfer, correct? Thanks again!

Did we reply to this? From the same email address? Are they aware of the bitcoin.exe program and website, or just of mybitcoin.com?

(And is mybitcoin.com our project? Has mybitcoin.com been reachable from the 'net recently?)

Does EFF know what they can do with their donated Bitcoins? IOW "Who are you, and what's in it for the EFF?"

Yes, we replied and they definitely understand that they can exchange their BTC for USD.

I'm unclear on who is acting as spokesperson in this matter, his/her authority, and what information has been exchanged with the EFF.

We were led to believe that this was a group effort, and traded over a hundred posts composing a letter that we could agree on, yet it appears that communications have been held since that we are not privy to.

I am especially concerned with the statement that "they definitely understand that they can exchange their BTC for USD." Did someone in a responsible position make this policy, or was this an ad lib?
