It all really boils down to how they do it, and the acts they carry along to do so, rather much more than the fact that they use the forum as a source of income to some extent. There are quite a few ways to earn some income here, although the OP is likely focusing on Campaigns and not let’s say Services. There, my empathy goes as far as my intrusion level tolerance.

Take for example those people that make a living of placing outbound calls, calling you regularly at any time, to offer you whatever they have to sell. These I tend to dislike, and normally I end the conversation abruptly if at all. Now there is a worse tier of people that call you to scam you with some bogus pretence of "your  computer have virrrrrrus" or alike. These can be struck down by lightning for all I care, since they are not only intrusive, but scammers who won’t catch me off-guard, but they may catch the next one on their list.

Same applies on the forum. If they respectfully sign-on to campaigns and don’t spam the place, they become contributors and are under my non-intrusive tolerance radar. If on the other hand they cannot put a sentence together that makes any sense, then they are virtually intruding my reading path, and sympathy stops there.

I'm a Nigerian, I don't hide that and I do earn from this forum but that's as part-time and not my main source of income. I joined forum in 2017 and didn't receive a penny until early this year when I ranked up to Full member and starting receiving ~$18 weekly and as of recent I receive around ~$50 weekly and if bitcoin price was to remain within it's current price range for months that means I'll be receiving ~$200 monthly when the average level one worker received ~$82 monthly by law in Nigeria. I don't see anything wrong with leveraging the forum for some side income but depending on it totally which leads to abusing the forum for selfish interest is what I'm against.

What OP said is true the site is popular for the wrong reason (quick money site) and people depend totally on it as their only source of income. I have received numerous invitations to speak at money making seminars listing BTCT as one of those site but decline them all. The recent I did attend as it was a blockchain related event I spoke against such practice, as encouraging Nigerian to see forum as a way to earn money instead of a place to hangout with like-minds, learn, seek blockchain related support and share information. is the main cause of numerous scam and spamming been linked to Nigerians on forum.

It is inevitable that this forum is used as a medium for promoting business, advertisements, and recruitments for businesses. This forum has the largest amount of users active around the world and this would be a great opportunity for people who are looking to share their knowledge about cryptocurrencies in general
Hey! how about Reddit? For sure they got more users than here Grin.

Anyway, going back to the topic, I understand if most of the members here use this forum to earn some money simply because job opportunities are present (like sig campaign and bounties). What do you expect? We just let such good opportunity slip away, of course not. Earning while learning at the same time is much better than learning alone right? However, it was a wrong mindset if a user just went here only for the sake of earning. That's
why I always tell to my friends or anyone who are willing to become a member here that the real purpose of this forum is to offer knowledge and not solely money. I do believe that money drives people crazy which is really true, best examples are the shitposters and spammers here who don't care for their misconduct as long as they are earning few bucks. seeking for money is not the right motivation, seeking for wisdom does. 
The point is that if someone makes this forum the main source for making money (I myself use this forum to get pocket money), it doesn't matter as long as the person is able to manage the money well.
Yeah! That's a good thing but it has nothing to do to maintain the health of our forum. If you make money in this forum, you should not only manage your earnings properly but also become a role model here. Obey the rules at all times, engage with sensible discussions, contribute something based on what you can do and help your co-member even in your simple ways Wink.

There are so many ways to earn money on the Internet and in the world of crypto, that you have to be pretty sad ( and a failure in mho) if this forum is the only way you can earn an income.

btw - why don't you tell us about cocopalm and it's place in the Nigerian economy?

I don’t have any problem with people using this forum as an income source as long as they meet the following requirements -

  • Post constructively - No shit posting & spamming
  • Don’t break the law
  • Treat people here with respect
  • Be an honest & helpful member of our community

Signature campaigns exist & possibly always will. We can all get along & have a fun, healthy community providing we adhere to the above points.

Byproduct of the central banking system is this economically very un-equal world. E.g. for some members of this forum income of 100 USD/month is pocket money - and for some this is more than average salary in their country (so the lure of earning money here can be very strong). For me the whole idea of crypto is something that will someday somehow replace the central banking system - and the by-product of that will be (hopefully) more economical equality. As others have stated before - this forum should be primarily a place for learning. But if someone can make some money along without spamming, shitposting and scamming - go for it... After all - earning crypto money from forum activity is the example of real world use of crypto.

This forum was created for spread the word about bitcoin and build a strong community. If you are considering this forum as a main income source then you are walking on wrong path. To be honest, even I am not depending on any online earning including this forum and trading. If you depend on forum income then I am sure you will be on trouble on near future. But its true peoples are considering this forum as passive income. You can earn from here bounty, signature, lending, currency exchange, selling skill/service and goods. But there is no any guaranty that how much will you able earn weekly or monthly. For example I am doing signature campaign, but I don't know when will it end or when will manager kick me. So don't consider this forum for your main income source.

Do you feel empathy for these people or do you think this forum shouldn't be for money?

Empathy for most of them of course even though I'm not sure about the numbers that have been posted here.
I don't see altcoins bounty campaigns being very profitable honestly. But there are other services like someone mentioned that can help you make money.
What I don't really appreciate is when some of them use their situation to attract pitty or worse scam others. There is no excuse for that.
And it's obviously very risky to rely only on this forum to make an income.

So don't consider this forum for your main income source. 
Forum income, whatever kind of income, and how much does forum income you can earn, should only be considered as secondary income, not main one, so I agreed with you. Even companies that run campaigns don't know that they will survive next one or two years. Everything in our lives change so fast, and changes are faster in crypto, at lightning speed, maybe (just a little metaphor here).
To be honest, I joined the forum firstly because I read that I can get money from bounties, but over time (since late of 2017) I realized that the forum has lots of valuable things, much valuable than bounties. The forum has its role as the place of most prestigiuos crypto enthusiasts, and they are very helpful. If someone got troubles with crypto issues, they can join the forum and ask for help. The forum is not the place of real-time support, but eventually support request will be solved by forum community. It's amazing, and I learn a lot of things within last one year Bear market. If Bear Market did not occur last year, maybe I did not focus too much on learning.  Lips sealed
