No, just that

	if community_approves(donation)
		- The donation can be considered a "donation" to
		  "Parabola" through "Ceata" (with whatever tax
		  implications that has)
		- The donation can be listed on the Donations wiki
                  page (https://wiki.parabola.nu/Donations)
		- The donation must be considered a "gift" to the
		  individual recipient (with whatever tax implications
		  that has)
		- The donation cannot be listed on the Donations wiki

That should have been pretty clear from the "you still need
... Otherwise ..." structure of tct's statement.


Given the heightened emotions surrounding this discussion (whether you

extra-careful when reading whatever they reply to, and to give the
author as much benefit-of-the-doubt as you can muster.

It's all too easy to interpret a misunderstanding as maliciously
mis-characterizing the parent message, rather than as a genuine
