How do you think a pool should earn its upkeep? It obviously needs to make money to operate, and it can only earn money from or on the miners (assuming it doesn't sell your data somewhere...). So, if you had the option to keep your favourite pool running (or the pool of your dreams), how would you want it to earn money to keep its servers running?

You forgot "Put f*ckin ads in the block headers" Roll Eyes

A pool-biased blockchain representation, by me: pident (WTFPL)

Hehe, that would be cleaver, but I don`t think the community would appreciate it much;).

You also missed: "Using the pool as metapool to pool hop proportional pools + keep (parts of) the profits." and "Merged mining without paying out Namecoins to miners"
