eventually he's going to want to get paid. Everyone wants to make money off their work and get rich young.

Maybe we can pay him rather than the advertisers.

It would be nice if we could all invest in restricted shares. Community ownership could preserve the spirit of free speech.

Why not take advertisers but don't bow down to them? Sure, it might all be porn like on pirate bay, but it's possible to get advertisers without cow towing to them.

I don't have problem with @Atko want to make money, hell, if he want to buy boat (because why you wouldn't have a boat?) i'd be rather happy to see big banner "gib me monnies for boat'n'bitches or i will sell my soul to nestle".

Hell yes, if @Atko wants to use the 30$ I just donated towards a boat/sick graphics card/etc., I'm just happy knowing he gets some enjoyment after work.

He should get paid, both of them should. It's called reaping the rewards of your hard work.

I agree and disagree.

It was Atko's choice to start voat and from the start he stated he wants free speech and is not looking for advertisers.

Once someone starts making money they usually begin to think, "how can I make more money?" It's why redd1t sold out and is controlled by advertisers now.

If the voat community decided to pay Atko he might be content with anything received. However, my point above still stands.

And I don't blame him. I just hope he stays involved in decision making.
