Hmmm... so the logic goes like this? The 1000 posters go on strike and succeed in getting TMF to roll back the subscription fee? TMF decides instead to continue to cut staff and reduce the quality of the service (anybody who has tracked a portfolio here for more than a year will know what I mean). Ultimately, TMF spirals down to the level of other free sites on the web, achieving a signal to noise ratio of, say, the Yahoo boards?

Phillip I mean no disrespect in the above, I have seen you post on several of the boards I follow here and you are obviously a valued member of the community. But I think your idea is shortsighted. I think the move to a paid subscription model at TMF was inevitable and I for one welcome it. Hopefully it will allow TMF to build where they need to while maintaining a level of service in areas that have recently begun to sag as staff got stretched and corners got cut.

I hope you and the othe 1000 posters will accept your free year as acknowledgement of the value that TMF places on you and continue to post frequently. I'm sure I speak for many when I say that the value that we derive from all of you far exceeds a paltry $30 fee.

Cheers

MF
