Who would have thought that you could make money from participating in forums?
A couple of years ago, I worked for a finance publication and one of my duties was to post links to the website's articles - it wasn't a lot of money to begin with (I think that task was a quarter per post).
I had no idea that you could make money by posting comments, such as views on the 2012 presidential campaign, the latest movies or talking about hobbies. I know some on here complain that they don't make money for commenting or they're not appreciated so now is your opportunity to make a few cents.
I decided to join two websites that offer this: MyLot.com and Postloop. The first one pays between one cent and three cents per comment, while the second one pays eight cents. That's not bad considering that all you're doing is posting a couple of sentences on a topic you enjoy.
Could someone make a million dollars? If you post comments 24/7 for many, many years, yes, you could! But by the time that happens, our currency will be so worthless that a million dollars will buy you a barrel of bread and maybe a coke.
Hope this helps!
