Wouldn't it be a good idea to have ads?

2 1  Anything goes Im not todd

The idea of having no ads is amazing, but wouldn't the website suck up money that could be used for other things? In my opinion, the site should have them like Twitter or Reddit, together with the posts. Ads on the side would be ugly. I just think ads would be necessary for this website.

According to Forbes, 47% of consumers are blocking ads: https://www.forbes.com/sites/tjmccue/2019/03/19/47-percent-of-consumers-are-blocking-ads/#6c83fd7d2037

I also use an ad-blocker (it comes default with my browser). As far as the costs for operating 20-things, I can cover them out of pocket, and if 20-things starts to approach unbearable costs with increased number of users, we can simply close off new registrations at some point to keep the costs on the levels we can afford. If people love the site and think it provides them a valuable service and deserves to stay online for years to come, I believe that they will donate or even pay for a subscription later down the road.

Just my 2 cents.
