Thanks Benny for your message.  It’s yet another reason why I love MM. 
A developer with integrity and transparency!

As a non-geek (and a grateful MM user!) what I think I’m understanding 
is that google might require some type of pricey audit that Benny 
can’t afford out of his own pocket. Is that right?  If that’s true 
perhaps all of us users could contribute to a crowd-sourced fund to pay 
for same. ??

Before we jump to that - does someone understand why Google might want 
this audit? I don’t know how many users there are but perhaps google 
could not require the audit? What does it do?

My three cents.
