    Then poke again because advocating for paying DM's, even ones that are your friends is a huge part of this thread.

    I spent an hour and couldn't find anything. The biggest arguments seem to be "DM'ing for money is not a bad thing" which was my own argument, and a few people have been arguing that "$5 is really low, they should be paid more." Nothing about forcing free DM's to charge money.

    Do you have some specific posts in mind?

    So in other words your not willing to support your words.

    I think you think that a major portion of this thread is about friends paying friends. But I think that many people don't have the same impression of this thread as you do.

    Then ask them their impression.

That the DM enjoys preparing (which is true) is a weak argument against not helping him out in any way. Players are entitled and lazy.

    You missed the fact this about paying for tables at the store. And the dm getting paid for dming generally Adventure League games. I have dmed for some asshats at my local game store which I would never call friends.
    Two who I would disinvited if we had a grill out at my house for the local game group.

    You found ONE post from DRF about paying your buddy who dms. So I think most of the posting is about paying dms who are not friends. The exception does not prove the rule unless said exception is in the original poster. Aka the first post.

    Typical. No matter how much evidence I would cite it would not be enough.
