Better Tracking

This isn't especially important, but I've long been somewhat surprised by the fact that politicians don't seem to pay much attention to exactly how their Act Blue contributions arrive. I don't mean in the sense that I want to be given credit - the Eschaton community page is a community page - but the point is that the community wants to be given credit. So, it was nice to get a fundraising form email from Jon Tester which began:

Dear Duncan,

I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for your contribution to my campaign through the Eschaton page at Act Blue last quarter.

Thanks to committed Democrats like you, we set a record -- raising over $2.1 million in 3 months, the strongest showing ever by any Montana candidate.

A small thing, but the first time I've noticed it.
