+<NAME>Donations no longer accepted</NAME>
+<DATE>Aug 30th, 2006</DATE>
+<p>As regular ScummVM web-viewers may have noticed already, we have removed the Paypal button from
+our site and are no donations are currently be accepted.</p>
+<p>Paypal has informed as that all software capable of playing a game on a system it was not sold for is in 
+violation of their <a 
+href="http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/gen/ua/use/index_frame-outside&ed=games_software">AUP</a>. Please 
+feel free to e-mail aup at paypal.com and express your disappointment at their policies... Which make absolutely no 
+sense for a project like ScummVM, which is often actively assisted by the original game developers and studios.
+<p>We are investigating alternatives for a donation system, if any of our users would like to put forward a 
+suggestion of a safe, open-source friendly system please let us know in the <a 
+href="http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?p=12891">"Paypal Sucks"</a> forum thread.
