@vgr I will see if I can do that. Would a "gift" still inconvenience or bother you?
@vgr I should have communicated better; I am trying to learn to be more internally consistent in how I spend money so that it does not contradict my values. I derive a lot of therapeutic value from the existence of this place, and I'm aware it is not free to maintain. I derive more value here than from the majority of treatment I have received. I am aware that I have a relatively poor grasp of appropriate behavior, and I come here because most of the world in my experience is worse.
@Bert I’m happy you find this place helpful. Don’t worry about money. Just pay it forward in kind by helping others who need support.
@vgr It seems the payment is sent and will need to be refunded. I apologize for the inconvenience, and I appreciate your considerate response.
@Bert looking into if the payment will just revert if I don’t accept it for 60 or 90 days or if there’s another way to reverse it that won’t take as long. I’ll let you know when I’ve taken action. Might be a while. I’ll probably accept and refund eventually.
@Bert Issued refund. Lemme know when you get it. Not sure if they'll refund the transaction fees, so you may receive 3% less than you sent.
@vgr Yep it's refunded. ✅
@zacharius You don't share the same scruples about getting paypalled out of the blue I hope? 😂
@zacharius Sorry if this situation is weird, if you want more explanation I'm happy to oblige.
