One more fundable update
About once a week I get an email from someone hoping I can help them contact Fundable.com and get a response from them. So far, no luck on that front. The most recent one was from a woman who had raised $400 to help a wounded dog. I was grabbing a link for her and accidentally wound up on the BoingBoing page about my very bad experience with Fundable.com.
Lo and behold. A new comment by Mr. Pratt. I am sharing it with you because… well, I’ll let him speak for himself. (The emphasis is mine.)
What happened in this article was a result of me covering for glitches in Fundable’s payment system.
I admit this.
However, I because did not write the payment backend that caused these glitches and I could not get my business partner to fix them, I have taken moves to close Fundable against his wishes, even though the site was making money.
Frankly, the content on the site was disgusting to me. I don’t want to run a site helping people fund surgeries for their nearly-dead pets when there are plenty of people suffering from hideous diseases who are more conscious of their pain than animals.
This Boing Boing article was thankfully the moment I saw clearly that my business partner is a sloppy programmer who has no drive for excellence.
I make plenty of business mistakes but I try to own up to them, even if it is embarrassing in public.
