I got rid of the PayPal donation button

I thought the PayPal donation button looks ugly and I think there were some privacy issues with it, too. So today I've set up Liberapay and Ko-fi as alternatives. The fun thing is that in the end, I'll be paid out with PayPal anyway. But this way, with a middle [...]
