Golden handshakes of almost half a million at Wikimedia Foundation

I'm surprised there weren't any noises on El Reg about the recently restarted, astonishingly aggressive begging campaign - the main banner literally covered more than half of my browser window, and I had to block _at least_ three different "delayed pop-up that 'on load' script blockers don't catch" / "backup pop-up instead of the main one when that gets blocked anyway" / "pop-in from the side when that gets blocked too" nasties.

In spite of all that I'm proud to say I managed to not read any of them, and I vow to keep blocking them on sight - with a smile - until all the "important" folks have left and all the money goes to two techies propping up the servers.
