I have to agree with youWait, so the website does not get anything from the sales?! Are you serious, guys?! I do not really understand why are they having this kind of a policy. The owners have to understand that they can actually earn a fortune from the sales. And I am sorry, but what would be the point of engaging in non-commercial activities for this kind of website?! That is just pointless. There are actually some similar websites that are registered as non-profit organizations. However this is a different story. If you want to find those sites and see what they are doing and how they survive, you can check this list: [removed] It is a very great list of non profit organizations.
I was going to say this thread definitely sets my spidey-sense tingling.Got to say, a bunch of one-post new members registered for little more than a month at most saying that the site should change its practices and income generation (getting involved in private sales, registering as a non-profit, especially when the previously post's quote doesn't contain the quoted text - and hasn't for several days, unless I missed some recent edit that isn't shown) seems a little... odd?
