I’ve not made an appeal for donations for a while now. A lot of our technical adjustments to Slugger, including moving our server to the US in the last six months, have helped reduce our costs considerably.
The TypeKey commenting system is gradually running in, and we’re beginning to see the return to the kind of vigourous debate (over 1000 comments per week) we saw before June, when we were completely overrun by spam.
We now have another upgrade to install to make this system even easier to use. If you’d like to donate a small amount to help cover this, and the ongoing server costs, then just hit the Donate button on the left hand side and send us what you can.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
