    Yeah, I don't care if Kane tries to make money off the site as long as he's being honest about it. IE don't say "OMG i need donations!"

    My personaly preference is not to get too many ads though. Not intrusive advertisements. =\ Cause that would suck.

    I still wonder why it's assumed that Tazmo makes far more than necessary to cover site costs.
    Consider his would be far more than the costs here (his site is dozens of times larger), his revenue doesn't seem at all excessive... I would guess he makes very little beyond what is used for the site.
    Remember, he also maintains a very large forum.
    (And I haven't seen any popups from NF lately)

    But I don't blame you in the slightest for adding the popups... you do what you need to do to keep the site running.
    I'm not here much, but if you have anything to say to me about Tazmo, you're either (a) fanatical, or (b) wrong. If not, we can be friends. Except you, Martyr. We can never be friends.

    basically he just has comment boards and Naruto Manga downloads. I mean, he links to Dattebayo and stuff.

    According to statistics, his site is approximately 4 to 5 times larger than StopTazmo, "Dozens" would be exaggerating.

    Considering he gets his site and forum servers for free, that doesn't really make sense for you to bring that up.

    Not sure what kind of pop-up blocking software you're using, but I get 2 pop-ups on his main website.

    So he's getting the tools to run a site five times as large (I still don't see that as accurate; remember the forums, (2-3 times as many members as these, nearly 30 times as many posts, and 10-20 times as many members online at any given time, not counting Guests, who on your site, are mostly downloading manga rather than browsing the forums), which suck up processor capacity like no tomorrow) as yours, which costs $140/month to host, for free? That doesn't make much sense, now, does it?

    When I say 4-5 times larger, I am referring to unique visitors, not forum activity.

    He gets a free server for his site and forum for having those German ads on his site, think about it, his site and forum are hosted in Germany, and he has German advertisements and pop-ups, now that makes sense.

    He is trying to say that the forums at NF are way bigger than the ones here, and yet he gets his free, while you at StopTazmo.com are being charged $140 per month. Someone has to pay for those forums, bandwidth doesn't just grow out Tazmo's butt.

    I am pretty sure I made myself clear as to how he gets his site and forum hosting for FREE. If you would read my post above that would explain it all.

    Those German ads make the German host enough money to buy him his own servers, so technically Tazmo is getting them for free, while the guy makes I am sure a decent amount of profit after paying off the 2 servers.

    Technically, Tazmo is paying for his servers and getting paid for having the ads.
    If I buy a $5 box of cereal, don't have any money, and work at the grocery store for an hour to pay it off, did I just get a free box of cereal? By your logic, I did.
    Tazmo's servers are not free; he's paying for them with ads, as you are doing. You cannot determine the amount of money he gets for these ads, and I can see no basis in your assumption that his ads pay for everything. No sort of evidence. What we're left with is both Tazmo and Kane paying for their servers using ads. Tazmo isn't just raking in boatloads of cash here.
    I'm not here much, but if you have anything to say to me about Tazmo, you're either (a) fanatical, or (b) wrong. If not, we can be friends. Except you, Martyr. We can never be friends.
