Even if they monetized this place and doubled their money it wouldn't really be what I consider a very big investment. I would have been all in on buying this place if I thought it could make real money but I may be shortsighted on this.


I'm confident this place could make money. I'm confident doubling an investment could happen in months. "Real money" is something that would take a lot work but making a profit really wouldn't be hard.


Bingo. A lot of examples exist in terms of a model to emulate. But the first immediate step, unfortunately, would be a shift in how the Board is moderated.

For example, a very well-known (albeit niche) online forum is TheHackersParadise.com (golf website). They are primarily a message board, secondarily a site that reviews golf stuff, and they've started a radio network of which I am affiliated. While I have limited knowledge of how they operate behind the scenes, they are very transparent about the fact that as soon as more events were planned where forum users actually met one another in person, their issue with trolling and harassment all but vanished.

Obviously the CFMB has events, many of us know each other, and overall I'd say this place does not have an anonymous trolling "problem." In many ways, the CFMB has already accomplished the toughest part: accountability. I have noticed a change in how people talk to one another as more Board events have occurred.

EDIT: I'll also acknowledge that a lot of what I'm suggesting (just brainstorming, of course) would require people to shift from "just an online hobby" to something more concrete. That's a lot of work.

I guess I'd have to stop chasing people off the board if the admins wanted to monetize. Hopefully future members have thicker skin.

Silent protests may not count?

edit: Sources report that there is some pouting going on.

Oh. I noticed Darko and Chus gone and figured Chus was on vacation or something.

I constantly apologize. I'm particularly known for 'I'm sorry you're poor.'

Trolling has never been a problem. If anything it has been an attraction
