    Just to give this a bump...I made a $20 donation last night on behalf of any member who cannot afford to pay. I am now making a second $20 donation on behalf of another who cannot afford to pitch in. To be clear, there are no specific members tied to these donations; I just know that some don't work or have limited incomes. I am far from rich, but I do understand the importance of this forum.

    I hope you don't have to sell anything more to keep the forum afloat -- it isn't right.

    Gave what I can at the moment, much love and gratitude for such a great place to be since inception, many years ago. Wonderful friends, loads of learning, fascinating ‘vicarious’ adventures, and health/spiritual boosts by honest souls. Thanks so much Bill, sorry you don’t still get benefits from your earliest years, but this forum and the wonderful moderators/administrators/technical expertise is invaluable. Much love to all ❤️

    Folks, thank you so much.

    I was just now able to pay the latest forum hosting invoice. The overdue date was today.

    Last month I was the latest I've ever been: I was just over a whole month past due. It was the first time I ever had two overlapping open invoices at once. But I've always managed to make the payments. So now, I'm fully up to date.

    The host, Singlehop, is excellent, and understanding. And they provide us all with as solid and reliable a service as one might reasonably hope for. (They, combined with Paul, who has exceptional personal expertise, keep us afloat in some wild storms. Paul's very clever bespoke additions have defended us against a number of heavy attacks that would have crippled other sites.)

    The very nice woman running the Singlehop accounts dept was even rather amazed that I wrote to her personally to apologize. (I don't think any other customer of theirs ever does that! )

    But, there's a very serious point here. I'm always mindful that we're just — theoretically! — merely someone's bad-hair-day-whim away from being taken offline. Anyone reading this may know full-well what pressure there is now on all alternative news sites, channels, radio shows and forums that are regarded as a threat to the NWO.

    And regarding whether Avalon is a threat or not: I've heard recently, a number of times, in substantial detail, in correspondence that's still ongoing, from an Illuminati-connected professional (this is an entirely separate topic, fascinating in itself, and to be reported for another thread when I can somehow summarize it all) — that he was told two or three years ago, in a long document that was formally read aloud to him, that Projects Camelot and Avalon were on the Illuminati watch list.

    I was not surprised. I've heard this, in different ways, from various different sources over the years. Of course, MANY others are on the list, too. This is all a worldwide team effort. Some sources of information, inspiration, and/or support are more prominent and widely-followed than others.

    But we know from the membership applications we receive in a steady stream that a large number of people — the very sizeable unseen iceberg under the much smaller visible tip — have been following Avalon daily without logging in as registered members. And they read everything you write. We're greatly valued out there.

    You see: that's not about me, but about the information and perspectives that EVERYONE HERE brings and publishes. All the mods do, mostly, is tweak things on an ongoing basis to maintain the quality as best we can. Quality maintenance really is the mods team's principal job.

    We make a few mistakes now and then in approving people who don't best belong in this particular community, but we do pretty well on the whole — and we usually catch those quite quickly and remedy things fast, if we can. And we never seek to be unkind when we do that.

    But I'm veering WAY off topic here. What I'm pointing to is that the forum is extremely valuable, and also extremely valuable to a large number of guests and visitors out there who many members may not know at all.

    With the increasing censorship, account closure, and aggressive filtering by Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, there's no predicting when quasi-legal entities may start to put pressure on platform hosts.

    And, if that happens, I want any executive in Singlehop to regard us as a good customer worth keeping — and not one which is difficult, a late-payer sometimes, and one they'd be comfortable to quietly shut down if pressure is applied.

    So that's why it's a good idea to pay the bills on time. I can't do much else to persuade Singlehop to push back if ever that extreme situation arose — but besides honoring copyright removal requests immediately (which we always do when we get them, maybe once every couple months), the only other thing we have within our gift to do is to pay the bills promptly.

    So: that's why your generosity might make ALL the difference. If this was a movie — and maybe it pretty much is! — things like that really might be the tipping point fulcrum.

    To all forum Moderators, Bill and Members ...I am deeply appreciative. Each of you have added the value here to be as close to truth as we possibly can -on a daily basis. Personally, I am shown videos and ideas I never considered. I am amazed (still) at the depth and wisdom of each and every one of you. Thank You.

    I recently met an interesting way of financing the forum, since I'm not sure if someone mentioned it here and I'm not an expert - I suggest you look at it and see if that makes sense -> https://coinhive.com/
    If I understood correctly this script should somewhat cover the server maintenance using forum users/visitors CPU power..

    I think Bill's post pretty much sums up what a Precious Gift we all have here on Avalon! Besides information, it has allowed us to meet some pretty extraordinary people & benefit from their knowledge! In this day & age, it is a rare privilege to be part of such a community! Let's do our part to keep it going!!

    I like knowing that I'm part of an Illuminati watch list and a threat to the NWO. Let's me know that in some small part, I'm doing my job.

    A big thanks to Bill and the mods for providing us with a small corner of the interwebz in which to connect, organize, and above all gain knowledge for what is really going on in the world (and beyond).

    Knowledge is power.
