I understand why people outside of the US may have a hard time understanding why so much money needs to be raised for a defamatiom lawsuit: In the rest of the free world, access to the justice system is much cheaper, and more fair. But you have to understand: in the USA everything is for sale, including the justice system - one who is rich enough can simply act how they please and crush any threat with frivolous lawsuits or kill them financially with appalling legal fees. Alex is targeted by some porn industry minions who have almost unlimited financial ressources and want to shut him (and us) off. He's one of the only guys on this entire planet who had the courage to stand up in public and call out the porn industry for everything that's wrong about it. There is no reason to doubt his intent (which by the way is extensively detailed on the donation page, with links to the lawsuit's documents). Do you think he's enjoying being in the spotlight and being one of the only public withleblowers out there?
