Honoring Petrov Day on the EA Forum: 2021
You shouldn't read too much into the amount of people pressing the button in terms of malice, but you can read into it in terms of negligence, lack of caution or impulsiveness. It's how many people saw a big red button and pressed it without first checking what it does. It's how many people took the chance that pressing it may do something bad even without the launch codes.
I was also curious what happens if you press the button and don't enter the code, but didn't check, because I view pressing the button as something you just don't do - I wouldn't do it even if a site admin specifically told me "you can press the button without any consequence".
Though, having pressed the button, it was a good idea to publish how it looks, and you satisfied my curiosity.

This sounds promising!
one question - as i understand it's not designed to help EA's who already donate in cash, but mostly for people who aren't familiar with effective giving, and won't have enough motivation to get into it - right?
