I agree. I'd be happy to donate to something I know will keep us safe.
I'd also suggest perhaps figuring out some other preventative measures for who gets to join. As happy as I am about the open registrations, it could also lead to undercover inceltearfags and their supporters coming in here and trying to crash the party.
Maybe an invite system, post limiting (can't just willy nilly start threads without a certain number of posts, etc)
I'd be happy to help mod if you ever need someone. I used to run several phbb boards (hosted and moderated) over a decade ago.
