So I have been venturing around the world of CSS and, as you all may know, there is a lot of criticism encircling pF. Today, i met someone who actually seemed to have some insight as to why other severs hate on pF. There are of course the basic reasons like pF having such a large load of traffic, but he said the reason was because "pF runs off the money of the community, while the owner of other servers have to pay the majority of the money". I think there might be some truth in this since pF has so many people paying for donator/admin. I remember a thread about where all the money went. Kyle's answer said that the monthly cost was $8700/m. A lot of other server hosts have just as many servers as us and yet they do not have the income that pF has coming in each month. I am not exactly sure how the costs are calculated, but from a game host site it seems that a 64 slot server costs about $64 a month (http://www.gameservers.com/game_servers/css-counter-strike-server.php). ehh my question wasn't clear and my post is a bit cluttered. uhh so is it true that the owners of pf pay for their servers off my money from the community while other server owners pay for their servers with the money from their pocket?
