For those interested, Here's how it went down when I confronted him about it in December of '08:

Also, if you don't care that there's rom discussion/begging, fine. Let me know, and I'll remove the rule and make a sticky showing places to get roms. Be warned though, that doing that can put you in legal trouble (unlikely) and/or give you less advertising freedom. In any case, we need a solid answer from you, since you are the site owner

The server costs more than the ads bring in Ė its nonsensical, as traffic is up, but income is down. In effect right now the ROMs site is ďsubsidizingĒ the main site. So there is going to have to be some switching around of servers and ads if the ROMs site is not a part of zophar.net, as I canít afford a site thatís not covering its server costs (and I have certain pressure from the other owner as well).
