Last night, a few hours after we were expelled by Pajamas Media, I laid out our new situation and suggested that we might be able to remain free of advertisements if readers were to give us enough direct support.
Well, so far, after just twenty-four hours, it looks like we may be able to do it. Dymphna and I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our readers, some of whom we already knew from their participation in the comments, and some we have never met before. Thanks to each and every one of you.
We’ve also received a lot of supportive email, and exchanged chit-chat with several new correspondents. One of our donors replied to Dymphna’s thank-you note with this message:

Thank you very much for your note — it is indeed an honor to represent my state in such a way. It was my great pleasure to finally contribute, since I have enjoyed reading the posts on GoV for so long. The work you and the Baron do is of such great value and importance that I could not fail to at least do my small part to keep things up and running. After all — every great ideological struggle needs a sound (or at least compelling) intellectual base — without it the resistance to Islam will amount to little more than undirected thrashing about. You help provide the means for that base to develop and mature, using the medium that is best suited to the needs of that effort. It is my hope that today’s work with the pen will prepare enough Americans for that day when we must take up the sword.
Thank you for all the hard work you put into your writing and the maintenance of your site. Thank you as well for being among those who are not content to sit by and watch in silent horror.
This blog has evolved into a genuine group effort, and everyone participates in one way or another. Besides our contributors, correspondents, translators, commenters, and publicly credited tipsters, we also rely on tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous and other sources who help compile and distribute information.
Other readers simply spread the word. Afonso mentioned earlier in a comment that he prints out and distributes some of our posts — there is no more gratifying response than that.
So posting is a little light because we’re dealing with such a large flood of generosity. But things will return to normal soon.
Meanwhile, though it’s been hectic, we have thoroughly enjoyed hearing from readers who don’t comment but want to support our efforts. The whole experience was inspiring.
If anyone didn’t get an acknowledgement, please let us know.
None of it would have happened without the help of Pajamas Media… they came in, and our angels followed after. From all over the US — you Texans are something else — plus Australia, Canada, the UK, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic, France, and Italy.
Nothing from the Fiji Islands, though.
I wonder what’s up with that?
