I doubt there was any malice aforethought. But the impression and result are rather suspect, You might consider asking for a refund. It was an amateurish display of misinfo and partial truths. Here's a little cover, or maybe damage control. From the recent bhtv video of the Bob and Jim

How much money did you raise from viewers in the week that followed the plea to give?

It wasn't really a plea. It was more of a halfhearted stalling mechanism for what was already in the works. Apparently, the answer to your question is not public information. There is no expectation of accountability. Are you a stockholder? Is there a public shareholders board now that the foundation is non profit? Perhaps some commenters will be on the board? Good question though. The finances have always been alluded to but not made explicit. That is Bob's prerogative after all. He also can spin it any way he likes.

I think it is supposed to public info, since Bob stated a number on the ill-fated diavlog that my computer ate. It was roughly a thousand dollars, if I recall correctly. About a quarter of what would be needed on a continuing basis.

Yes, it was around $1,000, but I'm afraid that's much less than a quarter of what would be needed on an ongoing basis (unless it came in once a week or so). Thanks to everyone who contributed. The money came at a crucial time.
