Some of you might be wondering why it's $500.00 a year.

Two years ago Bluehost pretty much forced me to move to a Virtual Dedicated Server, based on the traffic and bandwidth the site was using, which was a big hike in costs. That said, the result is a much faster site, and it gives me the ability to control and install a few things which I wouldn't get on a shared server hosting plan.

The Ads on the site are kept to a minimum, and don't pay a lot (because no one clicks on them). But I would rather not have a site of annoying pop up ads and videos that start playing when you're just trying to read a post.

I'm not in this to make money.

Thanks to Cornuck, Rats ans the rest of you who regularly donate not only money but their time to the cause and for starting this funding drive. Much appreciate, and I am humbled you guys think enough of the place to chip in a few bucks.
I click on them, especially the Russian and Asian dating sites, I hear there are a lot of woman looking for some 50 year old guy to look after them.

Were they born again?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
