Speaking of donations, though sort of off-topic: there's a story popping up around the net about Dungeons & Dragons creator, E Gary Gygax. He died recently, so by way of tribute the GenCon gaming convention has just raised $17,000 for his favourite charity - which alas turns out to be the CCF,

Supposedly the CCF turned it down when they realised where it came from. They say that they didn't want to give the appearance of endorsing a convention they had no part in, but that does seem a bit limp. Common view is that they don't want to be associated with D&D (ooh, witches, scary!), although one poster on the site below reckons it's because there was also pornographic material available at GenCon (that again seems a bit of a stretch).
