Why not try creating a responsible advertising model? Like DDG [querying Google on your behalf], you could proxy between members and advertisers. Sell ads based on forum demographics & topic, while maintaining the virtuous model of non-tracking and anonymous readership.

This from the guy that convinced me that google analytics was evil and was responsible for our getting rid of such things...

Ideally, Hubski could forever remain an ad free space.

Analytics tracks users and associates identity with access to information (which is the main problem).

Yeah, don't disagree, I just recall thinking, "alpha0 really hates google."

awful lot of blank space on hubski. I wouldn't mind if that blank space helped pay server costs
