Wrong. BC gets money for views and for clicks. Its not much, but think of how many different pages you load everytime you are on BC. I bet I EASILY rack up 100 views a day.

I am some what surprised that we have not heard how that is going yet, but it also does not surprise me. Essentially we are talking about Jeff'* personal finances here, which is absolutely none of our business. He has CHOSEN to foot the bill himself. He has CHOSEN to use ads to help himself so that he doesn't have to ask the users for a dime. Jeff, I love you Honestly though, Jeff does amazing things for us.
Very well put... And let me make this clear.........

we the other Admins and Moderators have offered to help Jeff offset the costs of running this site and keeping it going on a good server... He has time and time again denied that idea... He has felt that he didn't want us nor any members to pay to keep the site running...

If there ever came a time that we all chipped in money, I wouldn't want to know who did, and wouldn't want anyone to know if I did... Thats just the way I feel...

On another Note, Jeff is the owner of the site and what he says goes... we have simply let him know that if there is anything we could ever do for him that we are all ears..

Jeff has done a great job keeping the site up... For the time being lets just Thank him for his efforts... And revisit these thoughts when or if there comes a time when Jeff feels its time to do so...
