But I don't owe it payment to say that - or anything else.


One thing I really enjoy about the fool is the interesting perspective it provides on people. Who would have thought that you could get this much whinning and gnashing of teeth over thirty bucks for two years of posting fun. Some of you people seem to take this "fool pay to play" as a life transforming event. The more I read of this glorified bellyacking the more I am convinced that the fool will be a much better site as soon as you whinners have decamped.

Do any of the bitching and moaning types actually think that the fool is going to rethink this decision? How many meetings do you think there will be on revaluating the fee? How much head scatching and second guessing do you think there will be? How about none, nada, zip. It is a done deal, there is no going back.

I just cannot understand all this passionate bleating how about how the fool has ment so much to you, but somehow you are now forced to go elsewhere. And then there is the sense of betrayal gambit. "Oh I have contributed so much and now you have treated me so shoddily." It is only $30 for two years. One more time, with feeling: Get a life!
