Just what I needed! A rant by the notorious Kos diarist Hunter in support of progressives selling out and making money! I don’t know if I’d defend commercialism as vehemently as he does, but he’s got a point: wingnuts get paid to shill their ideas. Progressives should at least be in the same ballpark. We’re not even close to being there yet, but we are moving up the economic food chain rapidly. Heck, even I’ve made a whopping $8.52 in ad revenue since putting those Google ads on the site! (With my discount at Games of Berkeley, that is EXACTLY the price of one box of D&D minis!) But apparently some people decry our success as “selling out”. I guess they want us to remain “pure” and “ignored”. Hunter will have none of it, and is not shy about saying so.
