Post £8.5 million offer Rejected

The teen claims to be making about £2,500 a month from ads , how and why would he decline such a huge offer from the BBC ?

If he was smart, he would take the money, and buy a nice domain and recreate his original site. But being a stubborn youngster he refused.

Obv. He is smart. He built one of the biggest sites on the net starting out at age 12.

Maybe if he took the money he would waste it all and end up with a cocaine habit and dead at 21.

Re: £8.5 million offer Rejected

I don't think this is real guys, no traffic according to alexa, the forum is pretty much dead, the 'shop' leads to a amazon affiliate page, the 'radio' is ukfm which is not related to that website, the sponsors; the local youth council of hertforshire, his high school, some obscure teenstar.... and if you consider the amount of ads and the low quality of the interface..nehhh no way someone wanted to pay a dime for this.

Re: £8.5 million offer Rejected

The BBC is a public service broadcasting service.

I am not saying that the money is always well spent, but I cannot see them throwing money down the toilet like this. The only people who get decent expenses are the bloody politiicians that are responsible for approving the funding.
