who participated in a joint fundraiser with WMF as WMF's "payment

Whoa, please slow down!
No one has said anything like that, and it isn't how the term is being
used. A chapter is a payment processor if it... processes payments.
Writing about ethical concerns
while at same time being blind to anything that does not maximize
donations is laughable.
It certainly would be laughable, if anyone were doing that.
But let's try to have a productive conversation about the right way
forward. A lot of knee jerk assumptions are being made here that just
don't fit the facts.
I really can't understand the point snipping the substantive content which gave these
lines context and then asking for a productive conversation. Do you really believe these
two lines are a fair representation of my participation? If so please let me know so I can
place you on my ignore list (and suggest you do the reverse), so we can avoid any further
acrimony. If no,t stop unfairly representing me by your edits to my messages.
