    Default CS Audit Report and a Request...

    Although this site is a model (!) of sound fiscal management, and, unlike CB and other boards, has not sold out to purveyors of mattresses, mortgage loans or male enhancement products, occasionally funds are needed to pay for the hosting service and, perhaps someday, the Board Bacchanal the Executive Committee so richly deserves. Unfortunately, the CS balance sheet is currently over $100 in the red, as JL has been foolishly covering the monthly expense himself, presumably hiding this from his wife.

    To right our financial ship and save the Dude's marriage, we're asking for contributions from our regulars with the means to do so. Those inclined to kick in should click on the "Donate" link at the top of any page.. Pre-set donation amounts range from $5 to $100 and anything will be much appreciated.

    As the Board's auditor pro tem, I am of the opinion that, in all material respects, contributions received, expenditures made, and assets of the Board for the year 2019 have been recorded and administered in accordance with approved CS budgets, policies, and accounting practices.

    The fact that I post on the board and kind of run it? No.
    The fact that I have been bankrolling it for a while? Yes.

    Here kids, here is a nickel... Buy this server a new hard drive so I can give Hunter Biden colorful and well deserved adjectives once again and not have PAC gripe at me for wasting CS's space.

    BTW, if y'all would accept ApplePay I would have donated more.

    I normally don't think to donate until I see a thread like this, so feel free to bump this once or twice a year as needed.

    Aren't there supposed to be gifts sent out for various donation levels?

    Until midnight tonight, each donor will receive a free lifetime pass to use unlimited adjectives, despite being repetitive and unnecessary no matter how well-deserved, to describe the stupid sons of any presidential candidate. Act now!

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Thank you very much for the generous donations received thus far. I appreciate your friendship and enjoy our little corner of the interwebs.

    Completely agree, and as an addition, feel free to take all donations from this thread to reimburse yourself for any payments you have made (rather than set them aside for future costs), and to make a new request next month if funds are again depleted.

    Speak for yourself!
    "...you pointy-headed autopsy nerd. Do you think it's possible for you to post without using words like "hilarious," "absurd," "canard," and "truther"? Your bare assertions do not make it so. Maybe your reasoning is too stunted and your vocabulary is too limited to go without these epithets."

    You guys (gender neutral) are all right... I am pleased to report that we've received enough to get the board out of the red, and to cover anticipated board expenses for at least the next two years. The generosity of those who were able to kick in during these troubled times is very much appreciated. Many thanks.
