How much do you have to pay these moderators to leave your thread alone ?

If you pay them some respect, it might go a long way. :wink:

How much are you willing pay me, Henk? For the right price, I can look the other way when you make off-topic posts. I am a lame duck moderator, so I am willing to do about anything if someone will pay me enough ;)

Yes, and I ransom Adam 70% of what he makes, so go on.

Here's a tricky question, now. Considering that Miguel ransoms me for 70% of what I make, and that Adam ransoms Miguel for 70% of what he makes, who makes the most ?

Adam should make the most, since he keeps his original 30%, and adds 70% of Miguel's stake to it in the end. :P

Plus there is a very nice bonus for the one who deletes and/or locks the most threads this weekend. The "super dooper" payout is the biggest- it is for the most bans over the weekend (minimum 7 days)

It's not that simple: I'll fall back onto Adam after that. ;) I'm no mathematician but my guess would be that, eventually, each one's revenue will tend to a third of the total amount, after an infinite amount of ransoms.

It would be split 1/3 if the last transaction took place with someone outside the group. But that last 70 percent transaction stays inside the group. Thus, one of us is going to end up with more money. Two of us will have 18.75% of the money, the last person gets 62.5% (given an infinite amount of transactions).
