I'd rather not give out that information.

"Used for anyone in the bank" is not ordinary English usage and I can
only guess what meaning you had in mind.  My guess is that you mean,

We never asked them what software they run.  That is not our concern.

Here's the question that should and does matter to us:

  > nonfree software?

Yes, we are sure.  We refuse to run nonfree software, and if we
couldn't use this bank without nonfree software, we would not use this

It is the same here.  We are not concerned with what software
IndieGoGo uses.  The issue here is about the nonfree Javascript
software that IndieGoGo _requires donors to use_ in order to donate.

Thus I say, let's ask people to donate to Builder through some other
channel (not via IndieGoGo) that doesn't require donors to run nonfree

By that means, we can achieve the same subgoal (helping Builder)
without undermining our overall goal as a byproduct.
