It's not odd at all. As we see various activities pushed into unjust computing, which requires nonfree software and online dis-services, remaining free sometimes becomes difficult. You may have to refuse to do certsin things "everyone" does. If one of those things happens to be useful for working on GNU, that's not surprising as tyranny marches

In this case, I'm having to refuse to contribute to Org mode development in the convenient way I contribute monthly to FSF.

I'm hoping this is an odd situation that can be remedied reasonably in favor of my convenience, rather than a tyrannical situation that defies reason.

Nevertheless, it is good to know that I'm free to give up freedoms to contribute to Org mode development. @Ihor, will Paypal work for you?

All the best,
Thomas S. Dye
