So I tried in the Pit to get a thread going on this, reasoning that administrative costs were related to administration. The thread quickly degenerated and after a few suggestions I’m hoping that the thread’s acceptable here since moving it to the Pit will be futile.
I often read in discussions of board policy that the reason behind this or that policy is that the Chicago Reader operates this board at a loss and so does not want to get sued over content. I’m curious as to how much it actually costs to operate this board and whether it’s actually at a “loss.”
Please note that I have no interest in whether this is actually the reason for any given policy, a discussion of the rightness or wrongness of any given policy, or other similar comments. Just looking for basic information.
Mods, if this thread’s not appropriate here, just lock it. Moving it to the Pit won’t do anyone any good and there’s already a Pit thread anyway.
