PITA - pain in the arse.
I don't like the idea of Paypal donations - just doesn't feel right.
People with commercial sites know how to go about getting advertising and inbound links legitimately. Keeping posting links for free on bulletin boards and forums is a sneaky way of going about it.
Urls can be placed in sigs after 50 posts - in other words for active forum users, which most commercial sites aren't. Take a look at the memberlist for this site and see how many registered users there are with no posts to their name. Many of those had links to their own sites as the main/only reason for joining - I then removed them.
This site is intended to raise awareness of Antractica and provide a resource for anyone interested. The commercial parts of it are to pay for the not inconsiderable overheads keeping it going. I'm afraid helping other people's businesses for free is not part of the plan.
