For the record,I'm one person who refuses to register for any
form of must-register website,free or not,or to use a cookie-tolerant
browser.I think that enough people with such a policy are needed to
keep content freely available.

Per the above...you can SEND money to anyone with an email
address,but only if they sign up for PayPal can they RECEIVE
the money you sent?

I prefer real to virtual money.(And coin to paper,paper to check,
and check to plastic).

They're both equally far west!

I'll assert again...the mindset that welcomes euthanasia
is not an immortalist one but a mortalist one.They believe
that lives should end.A marriage-of-convenience with
cryonics is risky,just as the notion of piggybacking on
right-to-lifers' desire to preserve embryos to advance
cryosuspension research is.
