Zephalephelah: From your writing it seems like you are at least a reasonably intelligent person, that's why I find it hard to believe that the stupid stuff that you have to say isn't just thinly disguised trolling. If that is not the case however, I'd like to point out a couple of obvious facts that you seem to have overlooked.
1) This website is Blue's job. As far as I know this is his only income except maybe for whatever the missus may bring in. Since he has decided to devote all of his time to this site, obviously he hasn't any time available to work at a 'day job'. If on the other hand he decided to take a regular job, then obviously he would not be able to provide us with the quality product we've all come to expect.
2) You talk about how everything that is available here is available elsewhere. So why then do you come here? Because it has/had less ads? Why do you think those other sites have all those ads? If it's so cheap and easy to run a site like this for free, where are all the free sites?
Don't get me wrong; I hate the ads. But if they keep this site from going away then I'll live with them. Like you I'd prefer to buy myself an ad-free version of Blue's News, and Blue has made it publicly known more than once that he would also support such a plan, but lacks the time/expertise necessary to build such an engine at this point. He is looking into it though.
So my advise to you is this: STFU and deal with it, or exercise your right to choose and vote with your feet (i.e. piss off). Just don't pretend to have a clue about things you obviously do not understand.
Edit: You know I can't write a post that long without screwing something up. This comment was edited on Oct 26, 01:07.
