Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa...I must've missed the transmutation of threads to
get to this point.

I've made it a point never to directly connect the financial dots between me
and B5 viewers, I have 'way too much respect for them and I won't see them
exploited for *any* reason, and this is an example of why.

I very much appreciate the gesture, but please do NOT do this. As I noted, if
anyone wants to make a donation in my name to the local charity of your choice
(if I can opt for a preference it should be a women's shelter), that's the best
way to handle it.

That would be the best thing, honest and true.

Because someone asked what I personally would prefer. I answered. You don't
have to abide by that, it's just my preference having seen too much of this
stuff. If I'd seen a lot of the other side, I might have said otherwise...but
I haven't. All the DV I've seen has been against women, and that's where my
emotions take me, and my answer.
