Request From MozillaZine
Thursday August 12th, 1999
I've been considering recently the possibility of adding advertisements to MozillaZine. I've been interested in moving to a dedicated machine which would 1) give us control over the operating environment, 2) free us from sharing CPU time with 50 other websites and 3) give us a machine to use for other projects, and advertising would help pay for the server every month. More importantly, advertisement would allow us to branch off into another area, by allowing us to pay authors for work on tutorials and articles.
So, my questions are:

Huh? Doesn't that defeat the purpose? They won't get any ad income if the ads aren't viewed (or clicked on). That'd be great - they go for an expensive server, and then we all follow your links, causing them to get no income to support it...
And, then of course, there's the issue of getting free content - instead of ripping off the content provider, just don't go there.
