Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes time. Lots of time. Time is money. Visitors from banks' compliance departments, media, academia, and law enforcement, are encouraged to donate generously to our efforts. Media, lifting stuff from here and reprinting as breaking news, ought to remember how untenable it is to try to beat chronology. To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism and help us expose rampant corruption.
