Like the title says.
Why?
Aesthetics.
Not a good enough reason?
Go talk to this guy.

Buy all (or some of) the items in the BGG store. They're $5 each, you get to support the community and you get a cool little bonus. Heck, why didn't I think of this sooner....

Edit: Seriously, why didn't I think of this?

Or, donate one cent less than the amount which gets you a badge.

Or, ask an admin to remove it. That worked for me one year.

donate anonymously. What's so hard?

US Post is one potential path.

I'd go with the dummy account that way you can tip your real account the GG.

A cheque to the USA is $20 before postage.
And then it cost BGG $20 to cash it.
They might not want my $15 cheque donation.

The BGG shop combines with the Paypal donation page much more pleasantly.

I think you could just paypal the money to sales@boardgamegeek.com.

Tell them its for support but that you don't want the badge.
