#Occupy My Anus: Forums Fundraising
« on: November 22, 2011, 01:36:42 AM »
'sup faggotz,

I've been busy of late with Other Things but, from time to time and particularly since Bloomberg cleared all those dirty hippies outta that park in Wall St, it is natural that my thoughts turn to y'all.

Particularly given the financial peril that faces this here forum. Keeping the muckity-mucks at the top of S+S in Moet baths and iPads must be our top priority.

But what to do in these hard times?  :-\

Well last Friday when I was on the lav an idea occurred to me:

Charge fitty cents for every post reported.

Let's face it, there is no bigger group of stoolies on the interwebz than the members of the AM forums and noting the rate at which posts are reported around here I think a $0.50 charge per reported post could keep this place ticking over until the Rapture at least.

Sure, there'd be some collateral damage: Theodora and Leatherbland (to name a few) would probably be bankrupt within a month of such a system being introduced, but you can't make an omelette without breaking a couple of rotten eggs now can you?  :)

Pictar somewhat related:



Thoughts?

This idea could already be paying for itself. :)

Yairs. It has that American Horror Story quality about it, does it not?

Unknown action just doesn't cut the mustard.

  I wonder if there is a way to keep a dollar amount tallied below the member's name.  You know, just for argument's sake.

A most excellent thread (I LOL'd 4 realz) and a most excellent idea for an enlarged revenue stream.

Indeed. Keeping Ms Hoffman in diamond studded loo paper isn't cheap and frankly this seems only way forward.

Nothing remotely surprising there.

Mr Velez is, I am reliably informed, one of world's foremost Fingering Experts.
