As you pointed out: a negative profit is a cost, so I wouldn't use profit in your argument.

Based on how you're using the word profit in your further explanations, I think your argument would be more clear if you change all the instances of the word 'profit' to 'benefit'.

In which case I would say, "well yeah there's a reason it's called 'Mutual Aid' and not 'One Way Aid'" lol

Aside from that, the only thing I would critique is the part about relationships being a benefit of mutual aid work, when its something that can happen in any social function where mutual interests align (concerts, workshops, conventions, schools, etc)

okay thats fair. Though I think profit is still useful term. If the mutual aid project is perceived as costing more than it benefits it prob will end pretty soon unless the people doing mutual aid think that it has a chance to be profitable long term.
