The significant advantage is that we stop endorsing a network that collects
spurious donations from our users, the people who we are supposed to help,

A wild card, as opposed to OPN, which has started an annoying and wrong
fundraising campaign, is trying to found a new charity despite the fact
lilo is an SPI advisor, and, of course, has just changed its name? :)
