"I think it's the policing of the site that takes time "

Unpaid mods do that.

But running a website takes a lot of time, - I know we do it with our business one and only get tiny number of hits per days - but the "behind the scenes" stuff that goes on is incredible - and that's with no-one paying to advertise on our website, no salary to pay ourself and without 10,000 memebers!!!

There is "always" one member of MN towers on duty to step in when needed (eg at a mod's request or when posters request their attention)

LM, I had no idea MN was a limited company. Never given it a thought before today.

your original posts to me Ladymuck, especially the "why you are asking people to subscribe?" (with original bold), just sounds so chippy (and for the record I wasn't, just reminding those who may want to that it might help. I'm not so stupid or naive to think that only subs can pay for a site like this - you patronise me to suggest so quite frankly.

Then I wish that you had chosen a different thread title. It implies otherwise.

katierocket · 24/08/2005 17:03

I apologise profusely if the thread title gives a misleading impression - jeez. FWIW, I don't care if they are limited company and if they make a bit money for running Mumsnet. Good on them.

Make sense to be a limited company. I'm one - and Edam, you should look into it too.

what's the benefit MI? (I'm freelancer like you but just self employed at the mo)

Maybe you and I could set up together MI, and con some venture capitalists into launching us on the stockmarket, cash in our shares before the crash and drive off into the sunset yelling 'so long, suckers' at the Revenue?
Or maybe I've been up way too long...
