I can't speak for Nathan, But I will say that most of the people who have started up and continue to operate sites and forums, do it because they have an interest and passion for it. It's part of their lives, so they do it.
Do we, as moderators make any money by contributing and monitoring the forums that we are affiliated with. In most cases no.
We do it because we have the ability and background to help people out. In addition, there are many very knowledgable people on this forum that post great information that we each learn from. I have learned alot from others here.
Sorry if you can't understand that there are people in this world that do things, not just for money, but to help others out, and because they may simply enjoy operating such a site ...
