So this is a for-profit website, huh?

Just wondering if this website is for profit or if the ads are just there to pay the hosting.

I figure that it's for-profit. Don't think about it much. I figure it's a good thing that it is.

I was curious b/c I keep thinking that I should forget law school and figure out a way to finance my public interest endeavors by exploiting rich, paranoid future 1L's.  LOL!

we're not exactly being exploited. it's not like we pay money to use this site. that's like saying that people who drive on the highway are being exploited by people who post billboards.

It was a joke!  I don't think this site is exploiting people....

I think you meant "it's hard to ignore entirely."  Silly.

yea, for profit.  That's the reason for the soft core porn in the sidebars.  But then, everybody profits when it comes to soft core porn.

is there a way that we can figure out for these ads to pay for all of our tuition??
