Man y'all ever think about how incredibly stupid it is that the internet is almost entirely financed by advertising. Like, imagine if busses were only paid for using the revenue from bus ads. And if not enough people looked at the ads for Target or a legal firm specializing in slip-and-falls, then their bus route stopped existing. How stupid would that be. That's basically what we're doing right now, but with online.

@DayGloChainsaw And it's a deep-rooted problem since it's not at *all* easy to do it yourself. You can set up the server side pretty painlessly with just about any computer but getting onto the network is almost impossible. The Backbone is not only remotely located but it's almost impossible to add new servers to it for a lot of various reasons.
