You're all a bunch of Goddamn freeloaders, you know that? I didn't put up a fucking website so you could all just skim off the top. It's important for you to understand this because I am sick of you sucking on the teat of my seeming generosity.

Okay, let me take a few deep breaths.

I came down to the very nice office suites that are being leased by The Gift Electronique, to see how I was investing my capital. Mostly I wanted to see exactly how much money I was making off this website. Here's the total: zero dollars, zero cents. You cheap-ass bastards haven't even spent a single penny.

And here is how much I have spent to date on this little, shall we say "non-profit organization". $32,743. If you are reading this and don't plan on spending any money, you can suck my dick.

So where did it go? Over $8,000 in rent for 2700 square feet for two months, an honorarium to Robert Moore for his contributions, salaries to four writers, two computer technicians, one secretary, and - here's the one that really makes me want to slice off some ball-sacks - over $2,000 for a physical trainer.

As a reader, it's none of your business to know who gets paid the most, but let me just say this: when the axe falls it'll fall hardest on that Phil guy. From now on I'm going to be involved in the hiring process.

I should mention that unless you, the tight-assed reading public, don't get your wallets out this website is going the way of Nixon. I want to see some cash. I still don't fully understand how money is made through the web, but you geeks must. So, whatever it is you do, start doing it here. Is that clear?

And if you don't, I'm going to find out who you are and burn down all your pets.
