From the page:
" The domain has a worth of about 13,250,119 $." !!?

So through Dan's vision and his own money and even if he gets help from a "non-intrusive sponsor", look what we have held on to. A few ups and downs in readership, but CRUCIALLY he has kept "click-bait ads" out of here!

That sends a quiet powerful signal that we're here to Do Stuff, and that we're not out to scrape every last million-clicks!

Plus I think I read elsewhere here we're in the running / winning a few categories of longest running genre publications, so let no one be teased by that "fake" evaluation up there! Because that's valued by people who are lately just cannibalizing the old founder's hard work, then after two years throwing the gutted carcass away for pennies. So let's not do that to us!

Dan, did you ever apply for any official charity statuses for us? Because I think we're close to the criteria by mood.
