Is there a "good" way to use a public facing address that receives Bitcoin repeatedly? We've all seen addresses on websites or elsewhere intended to receive repeated transactions (i.e. tips, donations, etc.). I understand this is not a best practice for Bitcoin privacy: [https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Address\_reuse](https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Address_reuse) But lots of folks including many who are clearly familiar with Bitcoin privacy practices have static, public facing addresses to receive Bitcoin, and this seems like a reasonable use case. In general, are they applying some other privacy measures, or are they just compromising on security to receive small donations/tips etc., with the knowledge that the relevant address/wallet is not fully private? Sorry if this is a newbie question. I've been hodling for some time, but never really got into some of these privacy issues until more recently.
