Stated eloquently by Derek Powazek:
We agree. We want this to be a community space, not a place that sells eyes to advertisers. It’s also important to us to maintain our independence, so we don’t want to take money from wrestling organizations. We might become beholden to them, like a lot of other places have. As such, we aren’t doing ads.
We honestly aren’t sure how we’re going to make money on this, but ads are sure as hell not it.
