    I also hope that it never comes to that either but if it does the pricing suggested would be acceptable and I would ante up.

    If it happens I would recommend making the Marketplace a member-only feature. Buyers and sellers benefit from the marketplace so it would be appropriate to charge a fee, and finally you would have a "stick" to help enforce the rules when people do the wrong thing. Break the rules and you're out. Join up with a new name and pay a new fee to continue.

    One other thing to consider is using something like donations to help running costs - you could do that now even.... I don't know how they stack up from a fees perspective, but something like Patreon might work, or just drop your PayPal PayMe link somewhere?

    The ads are like traffic noise in a new house - after a while they fade into the background. I’ve never used ad blockers.
    I mainly use an ipad and sometimes a Windows PC.
