I got a strange response on WPChat, a Discourse instance:
I couldn’t disagree more with this. Of course you can make money off your blog.
The quote they are responding to was when I said:

I don’t understand what they are disagreeing with (I wasn’t expecting someone to disagree with a plead), but WPChat is primarily used by folks trying get rich quick schemes via WordPress, and that person responding to me is the maintainer of that community. So I’m done there.
Instead, I’m going to invite #wordpress discussion here on talkgroup.

Choose one for discussion, another for support. I think we have it covered now. Enjoy.
