I started Hoax-Slayer in 2003 as a service to the Internet community. Back then, I never would have believed that I’d end up dedicating decades to the project or that it would become such an important part of my life.
Over the years, I have been able to fund Hoax-Slayer by displaying ads provided by Google. Ads have allowed me to keep the site online and continue to publish accurate, up-to-date, and totally free information about hoaxes, scams, malware, and Internet security issues.
But the online advertising landscape has changed. Advertising providers have become more and more aggressive and invasive. Ad systems such as Google Adsense increasingly encroach on the privacy and security of Internet users.
Because of these issues, I am no longer willing to display ads on the Hoax-Slayer website. To enhance your privacy and security and offer you a better user experience, Hoax-Slayer is now completely ad-free.
But, here’s the problem.
Advertising was the only source of funding for the Hoax-Slayer site. And, it costs several hundred dollars per month just to keep Hoax-Slayer online. To continue operating, I now rely on voluntary contributions from site visitors along with commissions from a few trusted products and services that I promote via the site.
Can you help?
Every donation, small or large, helps to cover expenses and allows me to keep publishing.
You can make a one-off donation, or you can choose to make a recurring monthly donation.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
Hoax-Slayer is very important to me and I will do everything I can to keep it online as long as I possibly can.
