I think I missed that reply, but I'm responding to it now. Hey, that's not how it works. If I were to have a baby, I would need 9 months to show the first results of the project. If I say I need 9 months, and you cut funding at 3 or 4 months, it means the project doesn't get completed and there is nothing to show for it. And you are asking for 8 freaking years. That's what makes no sense to me. Why can't this project have shorter goals? What do you expect to accomplish in 8 years that needs funding all this time and can't be broken into smaller projects? To put it in other words, I don't want to start funding a project that I don't know how long it takes to bear fruit, and have someone tell me that I can cut the funding at any time. That makes no sense.
