Nobody was suggesting TJ lay out his tax returns!
Don't know the thought process of everyone else that suggested donations, but for myself I wasn't trying to say that donations can replace google ad sense or other ad revenue.
Was saying that the donations could help cover some of the cost of the board, while also allowing a Club Member board for people to post "girlie pictures." It is my understanding that with Google adsense, you can choose what sections of your message board where you want ads to display. Is that incorrect? Is there anything stopping a message board from having ads on every forum, but one? And would that one forum, not receiving any money from google, really be something google would object to?
