This is their business--not simply sponsorship out of the goodness of their heart. I assume it was probably always part of Tweety's plan to build the site, generate traffic, monetize and sell it.
Based on a couple web tools available, it appears JOF generates ~$2k-$3k month in advertising revenue. As a single site that isn't much money when you consider the cost to run it, however SocialKnowledge own 20+ sites. If they can control costs across multiple forums and leverage economies of scale to their advantage, that makes SocialKnowledge a very nice little business.
