Monetary worth of Conservapedia

Would you say it is possible to estimate the monetary worth of Conservapedia by taking the total editing time (or similar) and average wage of editors? This would make an interesting comparison with wikipedia, which has many unemployed/low earning editors. We could use this to calculate an average article worth as well.

PS - if total log in time is unavailable, perhaps edit count could be used? NigelP 11:55, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Conservapedia's value cannot be expressed in monetary terms. Money is a poor metric for measuring the value of greater understanding and faith, and happier lives.--Andy Schlafly 12:01, 1 March 2011 (EST)
Of course, its moral worth cannot be calculated so simply; I just wondered if this could show a comparison between the effort and quality of articles here and at wikipedia, in a quantitative manner, similar to the difference in liberalism that you measured. NigelP 12:13, 1 March 2011 (EST)
