You do realise Google pay per click, not per view? So you made money 
because your IRC buddies were clicking through.

Every click through to the competition is a potential lost user of 
Bugzilla. We'd need a very good use case for the money, and to have 
demonstrated that other fundraising mechanisms don't work, before we do 
this IMO.
