    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.
    Well the ad money goes directly to his host, so yes, his ads are paying for the hosting, not Tazmo.

    Also, in your post you said "You cannot determine the amount of money he gets for these ads", well you mentioned in an earlier post that he is "dozens" of times bigger than us, well we make $200 a month, how much more would dozens be?

    Well one dozen would be $2400 a month, now that doesn't even include the donations and PLUS members, also the profits from DirectManga.

    Considering the fact that he is really only 3-4 times bigger than StopTazmo that would mean he is still racking in around $800 per month off of ads alone, and most likely alot more due to his ads being on his main page along with 2 pop-ups per reload.

    I know for a fact running NarutoFan's site and forums do not require anything more than a Dual Xeon, which can come starting at $140 per month, especially for German bandwidth which I see is very cheap, especially when Tazmo claims to co-locate his servers, that means he is only paying for bandwidth as his host already has rack space in the datacenter for his previous servers.

    You people have forgotten this topic wants to address how much STOPTAZMO makes from stoptazmo.com not how much tazmo himself makes if you want to go to another topic because those there are people who are interested in finding how much stoptazmo makes, and it is annoying to read more crap on tazmo.

    Vash7ehStampede is the one who initially went off topic. I am simply telling him he is wrong, and have provided facts to support my words.

    His first post in this thread below:

    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.
