There's plenty of opinions on here, but early last year I was called & ended up giving more because so many turned their backs on the program and they desperately needed the money. If I had turned my back on the program like a large number of others, my donations in FY22 would have been zero, now I would have been rewarded for basically withdrawing support.
Maybe if they would have gone back 2 years, I'd be a fan of this. Just glad I came here and realized there was "fine print" on what constituted a new donation for 2023. No where in the headline info communication was there any warning & I'd have been doubly pissed expecting one thing and getting another. It's kinda typical GT treatment of loyal supporters. Batt's probably not used to the GT shaft yet & will need to learn on the job that he needs to be mindful of the legacy he inherited.
It's too bad, was real excited when I read the email as I was going to move my 2023 donation up to now. There's really no incentive to do it now unfortunately.
