It looks like preserving the integrity of their ToS to me. If you believe it is because of $500, you are a total idiot and I will not talk to you.

If you think good hackers report security bugs for $500, I am tempted to call you a total idiot too (though I will not).

Consider what motivates people more deeply.

That is a vague reply with no apparent relevance to anything I said except the amount $500 which was not to be taken literally. My point was that facebook isn't doing this to save money and believing so is idiotic.

My point is that people asking for a monetary reward might indirectly be asking for recognition, not the money per se.

Thinking otherwise might be idiotic too, but that's besides the point.
