Dhakablues - I do not own BC, I am just a volunteer as the other mods and staff. As such, I gather no money from any advertisement revenues on BC. However, it is true that BC revenues are sufficient to cover current operational costs - hosting. NO revenue accrues to the founders/owners and also to the volunteer admins, mods or staff. Yup, no business lunches or expenses. The time I give to BC is my own.
@Shaad - I generally agree with you. Whenever money has been collected under the aegis of a particular initiative, that money should be used solely for that purpose.
I will reiterate just in case this misconception is widespread. I am NOT a owner of BC. I am just a volunteer out of my deep love for Bangladesh cricket and also because I agree 100% with the current mission and vision of Banglaricket
I pay my own bills (and often some BC bills) on my own
