Oh yes, I agree most everyone involved with providing a free platform for people to learn new things and express their own opinions, like ATS, deserve
some sort of compesation.
I am not familiar with who gets paid when the company is a web-site, so I just went with those listed as staff, not the moderators. Also, I based my
speculation on numbers I can't be certain are accurate, so there is no telling if what I posted is accurate or not.
I have a company myself and, painfully so, I know the difference between gross/net. My gross, before payroll, materials, taxes, and other expenses
would leave most (who do not know the large difference between small business gross and net profit) thinking I am a multi-millionaire!
The gross loses a lot of weight, as it plunges through the cost/expense gauntlet, on it's way to the bottom line. If you've done good, it'll stop
before it turns red!

I agree with you Gaz. I don't mean for the discussion to seem like I am asking who is paid and who isn't, those details are really none of my
business. I thought it was interesting to see what the potential earnings on a site like this could be.
Like Wrabbit said, and I am sure most agree with, everyone who makes this place run smoothly deserves any compensation they get. The mods definitely
deserve anything they get, whether it's satisfaction, another type of gratification, or financial takes.
