There is a story this week in the Washington Post about GoFundMe taking down a fundraiser's site because they didn't agree with reason for her fundraising. They have, however, allowed fundraising for (allegedly) drug dealers and convicted murderers.
These relatively new and insanely popular methods that are changing the face of fundraising are starting to give rise to questions about ethics and censoring. We will start to see operating procedures and regulations crop up in response to crowd funding incidents that raise our moral cautionary flags. Will it become acceptable for the crowd funding site's owner/developer to determine what is permissible? Or should the crowd funding community at large have a say?
Something to keep our eye on for sure.
