  1. Is this thing on?

  2. is dealing with tornado damage.

  3. I don't know what we are capable of but we aren't done yet.
  4. I'd like to wait around and watch it roll over 2k but I got things to do and Rev may be out doing that life thing again.
  5. Do we still need this thread up here? I think it lends to the confusion that we are trying to raise money for reasons other than charity.
  6. Rev, when you get a chance... how many people have donated now?
  7. Yep me too. I have already used them all up again in this thread though.
  8. I wish I had more friends that were Falcons fans. Except for one, all of my friends and family are fans of either other teams or other sports (or not a fan of any sports). Unfortunately my one friend that is a Falcons fan is out of work and has been for almost a year now.
  9. I get it but there are still people who do not believe we landed men on the moon. Nothing will ever be enough for someone who is looking for a reason NOT to give. In addition, if you go too far the other way you run the risk of appearing less trustworthy. When someone tries to hard sell trustworthiness to me I immediately begin to question it. Independent verification doesn't go that far but IMO it should stop there.
  10. Agreed. I thought getting people to threaten me with violence was fun. This was better than that by a mile.
  11. I thought the daily voting limit would be reset at midnight but apparently that is not the case. It must be a 24 hour rule.
  12. People donate money to charities they feel strongly about. Sometimes it is related to something they have witnessed or gone through and sometimes not. I am a community first guy. Most of my charitable donations go for local and state related (mostly children) charities and a smaller amount goes for national and international concerns. I am not going to make Africa more important than my own local community, however, I applaud anyone who gives to charities whether they agree with my philosophy or not. Only a pathetic troll would make statement like the one you have in a drive to collect money for charity. I wish I could donate more to have you banned.
  13. I fail to see what that accomplishes. We know the money is going into an account the only question is whether or not you trust the person with control of the account. There is no screenshot for trust. I would have a hard time believing this is a scam. Even though I have never met Rev I know that people here know him personally. Also, I have been around message boards since well before the internet and after awhile you can get a sense of people and Rev comes across as a stand-up guy. One of the reasons I gave what I gave was to seed the pot. People like to be a part of something significant and usually the first couple of hundred are the hardest to get. The other was to send a statement. I have never met Rev yet I am willing to give a couple of hundred dollars. If you are able, surely you can trust him with $5.23. People who are capable of donating that don't want to will find excuses no matter what. Knowing that this money sends a statement AND goes to a charity is all I need. If anything, I am fighting the urge to give more but I have responsibilities to other charities.
  14. That is because you stopped it at 970 for like 10 hours (or so it seemed). It was a board tease.
  15. Have them all register, set up a private forum, and visit them here. I am all about providing solutions to problems.
  16. I don't know what Rev is having for dinner but it must be good for it to take this long. Doesn't he know this is killing us?
  17. We should leave this thread pinned up here from now on. We can all hang out up here and secretly discuss football safely above the trolls, tantrum throwers, and realists. This is probably the most fun I have ever had here.
  18. Under normal donating rules I agree with this but this is more about the gesture. I wouldn't want the money going to buying plasma tvs for prisoners but as long as it is a reasonable charity I am good with wherever it goes.
