OK, I read it again. How, how, HOW could I have gotten the impression that this was a ripoff of the whole "Mayan prophecy" thing in a blatant attempt to raise more money? Could it have been the selection (completely coincidental, of course) of the by-now-famous 12-21-2012 date for their "celebration?" Could it have been staging the "event" at Monte Alban, an old Mayan city? Or could it have been calling the whole operation "8000 Mayans," even though the majority of people living in Oaxaca aren't? As for the scrounging for money thang, could my impression have come from the use of "banking details" and "Paypal" in the subject line of the post? Or could it have something to do with the use of "donation" or "donate" 6 times, the use of "bank" 8 times, "contribution" or "contribute" 4 times, or "Paypal" in the body text 5 times? How did you NOT get the impression from this press release that the WHOLE POINT was to get people to SEND MONEY?
