Provided we get the full amount required via Patreon donations I'm happy to disable the Google ads.

Um, going serious for the moment;

perhaps after the $$ stream is assured, instead of jumping ship from Google, wait till AF is expelled.

Opportunity to send a message is an opportunity to send a message.


And maybe somebody somewhere takes a moment to reflect on their policy ???


It's a small gesture, but perhaps a means to making the internetz a better place.

I'd rather not have an account in bad standing with Google, just in case I need to use the account for adverts on future projects.

Logical.

Thanx for rationale.

Why is there "tax" to pay on top of expenses?

The WIN/Gallup End of Year Survey 2013 found the US was perceived to be the greatest threat to world peace by a huge margin, with 24% of respondents fearful of the US followed by: 8% for Pakistan, and 6% for China. This was followed by 5% each for: Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, North Korea. -LINK


"That's disgusting. There were clean athletes out there that have had their whole careers ruined by people like Lance Armstrong who just bended thoughts to fit their circumstances. He didn't look up cheating because he wanted to stop, he wanted to justify what he was doing and to keep that continuing on." - Nicole Cooke

Because Patreon is used for payment for services rendered. So it is income. Tibs will have to pay tax on the patreon income. We are calling them donations, but we are sort of bastardizing the way Patreon is supposed to be used.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

Basically what SC said. If people donate via PayPal to me directly, it doesn't get taxed, because it's a donation. However with Patreon I am basically saying "I will provide service X if you pay a subscription fee", so now that's a business as far as the IRS are concerned. It counts as self-employed income, which is taxed at roughly 30%. Now the complicated part is that I *might* be able to claim hosting costs as expenses that are tax deductible, but I won't really know until I speak to my tax professional next year.
