As I am unable to recognize virtuous monastics by simply looking at them, I rather give to all.
When one knows more Dhamma in theory and practice, plus the experience of behaving among them will make one more attune/mindful to their behaviors and possible intentions behind those behaviors. Even here in some cases, it's easy to know a monk by the things or the way he posts.
However, I no longer give bulk donations blindly. I support the individual monks that I know well as honestly striving in the Dhamma. That's my personal preference.
