Debate: For-Profit vs Not-For-Profit

Abstract Summary:

What is Profit? Do you consider THE424SHOW to be For-Profit? or Not-For-Profit?

The Whole Scenario:

1. Imagine there was a student that applied to a Post-Secondary Institution.
2. Imagine that same student was accepted into a program to learn web design.
3. And finally, Imagine the student spent 2 years studying all the best tips and tricks to creating a website that could entertain the world; they completed their studies; and created said website asking for donations to keep the site running and make a living.

The Problem:

Now imagine that same student wished to promote that same website on a bulletin board at that same Institution.  However, the Institution has a policy that states:
"No posters shall be displayed on this bulletin board, unless they are not-for-profit."

Ethical Questions for Debate:

1. Is the website considered to be For-Profit? or Not-For-Profit?
2. Should the student be allowed to promote said website on the bulletin board?
3. What is Profit? At what surplus are donations considered to be Profit?
At what point are donations considered just-making-ends-meat?

A Closer Look:

Now Imagine this scenario was about THE424SHOW.
What do You think should happen? What do you think will happen?
Note: A significant number of bulletin boards on campus go completely unused.
