This means that donation is for Emulatorman, not for Parabola. Should
Emulatorman decide to not use that personal donation for Parabola, which
he just did by announcing he quits the project, it means that the server
will not be used for Parabola at all.

Do you honestly believe that Parabola would reach a consensus to pay
this expensive shipping cost for a server that it's not a donation to
the project, but a personal donation to one of its hackers?

Please stop spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD). You've been
doing this for over a month now.

According to the fiscal sponsorship agreement (approved by consensus),
which is publicly available and has been linked here many times, the
Parabola fund is frozen only if/after 2 months have passed without a
Fiscal Sponsor Successor. And once the next sponsor is approved by both
parties (Parabola and Ceata), the funds are transferred to that sponsor.

That means that until June 5th the Parabola funds can be used, of course.
