Re: <nettime> crowd-funding on nettime

I would prefer not to have them on Nettime. I believe they abuse the function of the list, which has been a reasonably civil exchange of ideas, insights, intuitions, fads and nonsense. Solicitations for funding shd go elsewhere; they are attempts to persuade people to part with their money. I frankly consider them unwanted spam, however worthy their intentions or projects or participants otherwise might be. 

My 2 cents.
