  • WilliamKiely said “Not that in my initial comment above I said “assuming the limit had not been reached.” My initial 30% skepticism included this qualification. However, my later updates did not include this qualification.on 2017-12-01
  • WilliamKiely said “That is, I was also implicitly predicting at least 80-90% that the match would not run out by the time I made my donations assuming I made them within the first 10 mins.on 2017-12-01
  • WilliamKiely said “The match ran out at 8:01:26 (+/- 1 second). I donated $4,000 with my last donation going through at 8:01:17 just 9 seconds before the match ran out.on 2017-12-01
  • WilliamKiely said “While 100% of my donations were indeed matched, I think I was very overconfident to assign an 80-90% probability.on 2017-12-01
