Then again Russ did say in the beginning this would never be a pay site.
I will be happy to dig the post out and quote it if and when challenged to do so.
You mean this I guess:
"In the near future, to help pay our server bills, we were considering
asking for a few dollar donations from regular users. Please note, I'm
NOT suggesting a subscription. [The service is FREE and will remain
FREE. ] Into the bargain we will probably strip all ads from the site
from all people who would like to help us out.
I've been meaning to post for feedback on this idea for sometime, so
I suppose this is the perfect opportunity."
(I can't link to the post as it is in a forum that no longer exists but you can view it yourself on page 276 of Russ's post history).
The thing is the site isn't a pay only site. You are playing here for free and so are many others.
