I totally agree with you. I internally object to the principle of paying to access a web site. Not that it is invalid, it is just something I normally would not do. After having a few years to get hooked on the fool, I am considering it. But back when i was a new member, even though i could easily have afforded it, just seeing the words "trial membership" and "$29.95 a year" would have caused me to click away towards other sites. Seeing that a site has a fee makes it seem to have LESS value to me, ironically, rather than more value. I think the influx of new members will not be high enough, despite what the Fools on top say, to sustain the site long-term.
