Just like people here provide "free content". Would you expect to be paid for your posts if MR got sold?
Or the uploaders at The Pirate Bay -- do they get a cut?

There's a big difference between someone like me (the equivalent of a commenter at Huffington) and someone like you or Kovid and others who are creating much of the site's value. If this site was to become worth a lot of money, I'd think you folks should get something from it.

Doesn't Karma represent our payout if MR is sold?!
