If they wanna make money, they should invest in stocks. If they wanna make this place work to it's full potential, invest IN IT!
Letting you do as you've done IS an investment. One far more lucrative than what they've got going now.
And with the way things have been the past couple weeks, that's abundantly clear. Search is disabled, currently viewing kaput (trival), the site was down twice. (Among other things) Take this back to last year and it wouldn't have been more than a day or two for those things to be back.
Things keep going at this rate, their big-time money's gonna turn into small potatos.
And just as was said to you, they'll have put themselves in that situation.
