Baba,

a) you should be GLAD you have an organizer
b) what Nate does with the money is NONE of your business, 10 bucks is peanuts; if you don't think you're getting any value of it, try going to free events
c) how do u know Nate didn't do jack?
d) if only u'd knew what it takes to organize such events, u'd be a little wiser.
for now, suck some knowledge before spiting.
