    I dislike Paypal. Now thats the only option to contribute financially to MR. Please, could you consider to enable crypto currencies as payment method ?

    I think the way the system is set up, paypal is integrated into the automated process so, I don't think its feasible at the moment. Here's what Q stated about paypal in a prior SFF request.

    I don't think enough people subscribe to MacRumors to make it difficult to manually change their status but also I don't think enough people subscribe to MacRumors and use Bitcoin to make it worth implementing. You can send me $25 USD in BTC if you like though... :) I'll mention you in 5 of my posts as a bonus!

    But at least SP would mention me 5 times ... Hopefully positively :rolleyes:
    Need first to make some BTC anyway ... My alt-coins are not yet enough or the x-rate is bad.

    Maybe paypal instead (again) :mad:

    I just slowly buy a set dollar amount of BTC every so often and treat it like a stock. Never investing more than I'm okay with losing.

    Ok ok, again paypal. This year I tried it different with a prepaid Visa card from a convenience store. Added that to my account though. But limited value.

    But at least peace for another year ... :)
