Referring to the last few sentences of the letter of appeal I have a few inquires. Take a look at the following sentences.    

We want to keep it free and strong, but we need the support of thousands of people like you.I invite you to join us: Your donation will help keep Wikipedia free for the whole world.The sentence structure seems to claim that WP will place advertising if it doesn't receive enough funding and I do believe that this isn't what we would want. 

What if WP lack of funding, will the foundation use advertising as a threat for donation? I hope Jimmy didn't wrote that appeal personally. Perhaps it is just another staff. No insult or criticism. I am just asking. 

Let me know what you think.
