Conversations Thom has all the rights in the world to be busy with his studies/being sick or whatever, but it makes you wonder ...

If Thom where to jump ship (which gets ever more likely the more time passes) will OSnews be able to survive?

(If Thom were to turn rouge or greedy he could just start his own site and take all the advertisement(which I block with AB+) money for himself and pay for CO2 reduction to save the planet. Wouldn't that be something?)

Just to be clear, I don't want you to leave. Although we don't always agree I like your work a lot, otherwise I wouldn't visit this site so regularly.

As for the money .. I have no real solution. I would suggest a LWN like paywall, but you have to provide really high value content a very focused audience for that to work .. so that is not an option.

Maybe be more flexible with ads, I wouldn't mind text only ads to the side, but I will not accept animated gif ads at the top. Sorry.
Problem probably is that what I would accept is not really paying well ;)
