Yes they do -- and truly I hope that they make a lot of money from the site. Don't you?


It would be interesting to know just how much money is being made. I Googled this once and the number I was given for this specific site was $125 per day if my memory is correct.

I feel blessed to know that my contribution to these forums somehow helps someone else to put money in their pocket. Blessed, I tell you.

I think it would be like looking into someone's underpants. Extremely none of our business, IMO.

Maintaining the forum (and the whole website) also costs some money...

I have to agree with Dave, here--though I would use Ixquick or Startpage, not Google, for obvious reasons. It's nice to agree with you, Dave! Blessed, I tell you!!!

I think whether the site makes $1 or $10000 day from ad clicks is no ones business.

No one... members, moderators, or administrators has any obligation, either legal or ethical, to answer any question.

And the above has nothing to do with editing of members' posts, banning members, etc.

And since we've drifted off topic of an off topic post, now's a good time to close.
