It was NOT the Webmaster's idea. A couple of posters did not like some of the forum owners making actual money so they looked for any and every reason to dis-credit some forum owners.
All the Webmaster did was try and come up with a couple of ideas to TRY and make these posters happy........But, I am sure they will come up with something else trying to make some of the forum owners look bad.
Personally, I never did understand the big deal. Maybe these posters were jealous???
