How can they hope to come out money wise on this...I mean "ad supported" is a only as good as the traffic the content can generate... in most cases that has to be about zero...right?

Very few ads as of right now. They do, or did have a lot of subscribers.

I'd suspect they're main objective is to increase the number of users, and not so concerned with income.

As a subscriber, I'm far from happy that I have paid for what is now essentially the same as the free service.

$49.99 per year for ad-free. So ****** what?
