is there a reason Rich won't literally just start a "keep the forums open" Patreon with a high $ goal to convert it to Xenforo?

people care about the forums for some godawful reason. Ask them to give you money for the thing they like. They'll pay you.

He did.  Multiple times.
Like permanently, not just the stupid Spaceship Drawing thing or whatever. Just open a Patreon with some near ludicrous minimum monthly goal that is "I do not close something awful".

Not "pay to watch my bad youtube videos" or "pay to listen to my podcast I'm already tired of" or a one-shot fundraiser- just flat out just say, "I can't really afford to run SA anymore, I need $x to continue to do so and here's a stretch goal to convert the forums to xenoforo". For some reason he'll try to sell t-shirts again, or shill a podcast/youtube channel, he just won't ask for consistent money to keep the ONE fucking thing people still care about around.

The majority of goons know that his pleas for money to keep the forums running are bullshit. The forums pay for themselves every month. The problem lowtax has is they no longer bring in enough to also support his family and child support payments to his ex.

Something Awful has evolved beyond being a mere joke website. It is a serous place to discuss the issues. Wait where is everyone going!?!
 :say:
 :christina:

The best is when they use 4chan and reddit as examples of something they want to avoid. They take pride in being the digg of forums.

Revenue dropped nearly 50% in a single year? Perfect time to crawl into the bottle and ignore my sole source of income for a decade.

Even at his peak, he only had a McMansion, his strip mall office, and his GTR.  Where the fuck did the rest of it go?  That must be one hell of a Barefoot and Ambien addiction.

Those numbers dont include taxes he had to pay. He also shelled out $150,000 in alimony to his ex and still pays child support. Who knows how much hes wasted on drugs and other worthless crap.

Getting divorced is the worst investment choice you can ever make in your life.

So essentially every other decision lowtax has made hasn't been as bad as that.

I don't think he made that decision.
