How to Increase Donations

This is a great program worthy of support from its users. I suggest that the App Store listing for AdBlock should say : free/support , "Fee Optional", etc, instead of just "Free". I have loaded other free extensions, but when I see an extension labeled as ""free"" and then it asks for a donation/support, it feels like a "bait and switch" and I am resistant to contributing.
I think that if there was a different label, as a sort of preview, there would be a different mindset for the user, and he/she would be much more likely to contribute support. In other words, being honest up front would create a much greater likelihood of shelling out a little dough, especially when one sees how well it works.
I'm live on social security, so I wasn't inclined to support after seeing the word "Free" ,but the program makes net life so much easier for me that I had to offer something to say thanks.
Good Luck
