This is a serious question.
Why would anyone donate any reasonable amount of money to a torrent site?
I know there is server expenses, but so what? If the site can't sustain it's self in some other way than having a few foolish people throw money at the operators shouldn't the do everyone a favor and just shut down? I know there is people giving literally hundred of dollars a month away to torrent sites just so that they can have an extra star under their user name and keep the place running -and I just think "idiots".
I mean, if people are going to pay to download or help with server expenses shouldn't they just get a Usenet (newsgroups) account and leech all they want as fast as they can? Torrent sites aren't supporting the releasers, while some are just making their operators rich.
Why would anyone pay for BT other than pure ignorance?
