I agree with you if you say "to hide credits you MUST donate". Just I think
the words "If disabling the credits, please, consider donating to the
project." are clear enough that you can consider it, if you want.

Another option is to completely remove the option to hide the public footer
credits and make the user to hack the footer.php file if him want to remove
the footer. But I like making thins more easy without hacking any file.
