  •  Well, I am not at all sure (none)
    Your first point is true. I was under the impression that the campaign did pay meetup for their services. That was the basis of the Dean campaign.

    And my problem is that this wouldn't be counted as a contribution. Say George Soros donated to whomever the 2008 nominee is meetup.com services for the entire campaign. Well, this should be construed as a contribution, don't you think? If it is exempt from that status, then all that revenue doesn't count against his total ability to contribute, does it?

    •  MeetUp was free through 2004. (none)
      And I have to ask the question again -- if Soros did that, what's the harm?
      •  Because his overall contribution limit (none)
        Would be raised, and while for a campaign in general the cost might not be so great, it does significantly alter an individual limit.
