Heh. A couple of thoughts.
First something tells me one of our veterans has seen text versions of this kind of thing way back in the old days, maybe though without the raw dollar spend aspect, but in game currency.
On the sillier side:
"DonationCoder starts out by giving you programs for free. But then by asking, with a very soft timeline, once someone in the CodingSnack section has bailed out your bacon, then you choose to give money. Then because while repeats are welcome, only one donation is "officially encouraged", so that makes the programs all free again for a while!"
