Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
This is a bad idea in that it will harm the donation rate, and a generally strange way of doing things – the rights of the donor, who is donating out of his own generosity, are being taken away, in favour of the child who is, essentially, indebted to the donor.
It seems a strange state of affairs to me.
