Spend that money on drinks while hitting on boomers at the bar instead.
And literally $9USD a month (that's paid in advance anyway, hosting is paid for until early 2021). If we blew up in popularity it would cost more but even then it's highly unlikely that we will become huge like foxdickfarms since forums in general aren't as popular as they used to be and what we talk about is insanely niche.
Time for some DHI Lore:Kugelfisch wrote: ↑Thu Sep 12, 2019 1:22 pmI digress. DHI has pretty much always served the purpose (at least the forum) of being the place to vent your grievances you can't easily voice elsewhere. Most posters at 1.0 were people banned from Spoony's or the TGWTG forum. Allowing people to post even without an account is a logical step further in that direction.
A shame Monty was a fucking idiot who forgot about that. Though like the lefty shitter that he was it was never about free speech for him, he wanted his own TGWTG site with Ebeeto and UriniatingTree and tried to become popular by shitting on the competition rather than improving himself and just being good. Once he realised no one read his crappy articles and that Ebeeto and UrinatingTree didn't respect him enough to make videos (and why would they, Monty was a teenager and they were in their early to mid 20s) he got shitty with the user base and secretly hated us.
1.0 at one point got so fucking bad that you had to login just to see the fucking forum, just like Spoony's. I knew what he was doing, he wanted Ebeeto fans who didn't hate TGWTG to go on the site and not be scared off so he tried to hide the forum and make it as hard as possible to access. He removed the link to it on the main page or made it hard to see (can't remember), so he was just as bad as the INs we hated. He implemented so many shitty rules even very early on when we had 6 regulars, he couldn't help being a typical freedom hating Anglo. Teenage Dictator indeed.
Oh and BTW, he was a mod on some older forum for Ebeeto and UrinatingTree who asked for more power, it wasn't just given to him. Again proving me stance that anyone who WANTS to be a mod is just a power hungry fuck who'll abuse it immediately, hence why in real life politicians are scum.
DHI has had way less internal drama since 2.0, since a lot of that was caused by Monty's anal rules and people (often me) going off at him for it. DHI became something Monty didn't intend and as some of you oldfags have said here I understood what it was when I made 2.0 (and for any newfags, 2.0 was originally a backup since the forum part of DHI died. A few months later once DHI proper was dead people migrated, it was like DHI's bitchute channel for a few months). The users came here to escape tight assed authoritarian mods and safe spaces before they were called safe spaces, and it will always be that way.
