I just renewed my "Gold Membership" for another year. Sometimes I YELL a lot and GET yelled at a lot, but all in all, for about 14 Cents a day, it is pretty cheap entertainment. SOOOOOO, without "Yelling" how about the multitude of "FREE" members step up to the plate and at least become "Silver" members. >>>>>Thats like .067 Cents a day ($25.00) a year. ???? .confused smileyconfused smileyconfused smiley .067 cents a DAY ????? DAMN, that is CHEAP. eye popping smileyeye popping smiley

NOW: This IS getting interesting. The score is now 4-2 Four PM's saying they agree with me, that more people should help.out financially. <<<<<These were from Paying members. Two Hate letters saying I should mind my own business. ?? <<< From free members. ?? I think that IS the point. If you CHOOSE to not pay. It is OK. But If I choose to bitch about it, is that not my right. ?? and I might choose to do it in CAPS SOOOOO Goodby on this one. I will be watching.

Well, actually $0.067 DOLLARS per day, not cents, but your point is well taken. A small price to pay for the pleasure and wisdom I derive. YMMV!

Don’t look at me. I am tapped out.
I am building a house and get paid progressively. I need to finish the decks and paint and it’s snowing out.

So what Joe.
Skye has mentioned, and very often, one does not need "YA GOT TO PAY TO PLAY".

J. I like the volunteer system. I enjoy the site so I pay.

It would be interesting to know the stats on % of ppl whom pay to be a member, the # of their posts, etc...but that is not our business,...only Skye's.

What I absolutely abhor is the "guilt trip" method ....not that I am insinuating this on your post,...but just a thought came to my mind,...so I had to post....for example: when one goes thru the grocery line, and the cashier has been forced to ask (after all your grocery items scanned, and yer paying)...."Would you like to donate $2 to ...this...or that Foundation?"

(And it's always a Cancer or Children's Hospital or some other GUILT Foundation to bilk ya outta yer $. I'm not heartless...as my family has had "cancer, children's hospital issues, etc"...and....HEY, I believe in those Foundations,...BUT,...I'll donate on MY time & MY $. My personal opinion is that I hate the guilt trip approach. Again, not insinuating this on your post. But. Jus sayin

Here's what I figure is going on with those grocery store solicited donations. The store collects all of that money, donates it, and then they get the tax deduction. Screw that.

Come on I live on an island in the north pacific, it costs $100.00 for 25 gigs of internet, milk is $8.50 a gallon and gas is $1.80 a liter not gallon.

But you are right its probably time I stepped up and helped Skye out.

Very economical for such priceless advice and deserving support for sure.thumbs up

Soon you will see a silver star beside my name.

Thanks for pointing that out Joe

Kind Regards

Chris...(above post)...NEVER even thunk that. You're prolly RIGHT !!

SCREW "Save-On" (BC grocer)....I'm gonna CALL this out EVERY time the cashier asks again....not to bag on the cashier,...but I'll screw the rest of the ppl behind me & ask the cashier for the MANAGER to come STAT,....so I can ask the dickhead THAT very Q.

"DOES SAVE-ON GET A TAX BREAK ON MY DONATION? YES or NO? IF YOU CANNOT ANSWER THIS Q,..I PLAN TO STAND HERE IN YOUR GROCERY LINE UNTIL I GET ....AN ANSWER THAT SATIFIES ME...OR CLOSE THIS LINE DOWN, & I REFUSE TO PAY, AFTER ALL YOUR BAGGING."

END OF STORY.

(PS. I do not MIND being a GOLD member & paying for something that I actually get personal satisfaction & personal return ...from.

Jus sayin)

I don't have much to contribute to this group but I read most of the posts and use the search function for problems I have encountered. I don't think my car would be as reliable and enjoyable to drive without the knowledge I have gained here. Its worth a few bucks per month to support Skye.

By the way, the site is $48 US, or $65.40 CAD.

But Chris, they went to a lot of trouble collecting that money! grinning smiley. It’s only right they should be allowed make money off the suffering of others.
