PP, I can see where you are coming from, but there is a fundamental flaw in your logic. See, it is not free for TMF to provide us with and maintain these boards. And right now, advertising revenue just isn't cutting it. So they are charging a token amount. Basically, this amounts to everyone pulling his or her share of the load. The way I see it, the nominal charge is RENT for the use of the boards.

We pay a monthly fee to go to the gym, for example. Why is it so hard to get our heads around paying a monthly fee to access boards that someone else has paid to develop, set up, and maintain?

And one last thing... I am not a "content provider". I am an investor who likes coming to the boards to chat with other investors. I don't feel the need to be compensated for my time here. If it is such trouble for you, then don't do it.

Am I missing something here?

Rt.
