What thread, exactly? this "original" one cited earlier???...

https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/donating-to-slackware-4175634729/#post5882751

I don't see paypal.me/volkerdi mentioned anywhere in that thread.
You got an explicit url where it's actually, verifiably mentioned by PV?

Cheers, Bev
It's true that Smokey Bear deserves praise for his
campaign against forest fires, but nobody ever mentions
the park rangers he kills for their hats.

Thanks, Bev (I take it that's the real, verifiable you:).
I don't use linuxquestions much (except when google sends me there)
and didn't know how to navigate through the pages (hadn't noticed

Hmm...and I apparently messed up the "references" trying to post
this question here.

"volkerdi" has been at Linux Questions for a long time and made a lot of

And also, that has been the "official" site for support. People have said
that, and there's even a note on the front page of slackware.com about it.
So that is some level of reinforcement of it being Patrick.

Thank you (and others) for this info.

Donation made.

Let's make this a Big Deal. Let's all get out there and support Patrick

I'd noticed the long-time (and many-post) presence of that username,
too, and took that as a pretty likely (at least hopefully likely)
indication.

> Thank you (and others) for this info. Donation made.

Ditto. ( I pruned this post to emphasize the info about the
https://www.paypal.me/volkerdi
link where donations, or should I say payments for services
rendered, can be made. )
