I do not plan to get into a perpetual debate just wanted to point out
that there is no "playing" and "buying" and "risky investment"
involved. Nobody asked WMF to buy BC or to convert existing assets to
BC. All the risk has been taken by the donors (whether they donate
$100 or $0), WMF *finiancially* risks exactly nothing (provided that
we assume people who want to donate in BC would not use goventment
money anyway, which seems logical to me).
