If I didn't dislike them so much I'd run a poll, but I would like to ask the assembled boardmembers: How many of you considered yourself a "content provider" before this new pricing plan was announced?No offense to all concerned but give me a break. You came here because you enjoy participating in the debate. If you don't want to stay because you don't want to pay, I can't argue with you - there's lots of content on the web that I won't pay for. But please don't trot out this false moral outrage over the alleged wholesale plundering of your valuable services. We all get paid by the Fool boards--by the participation of the other members who engage us in debate and provide us with new information. No, you can't monetize it (except maybe to consider the "opportunity savings" - i.e. money you didn't spend because you were ensconced in front of your screen rather than out shopping or drinking) but so what? For most of us, that's not what brought you here in the first place anyway.Chris
