"If Fool founders and Fool employees were confident that the $30 fee won't change a thing, they should've been brave and not give out any free memberships and THEN see how things will really be.

But then again, they know hence the freebies..... "

The funny thing is, the people who are the heavy posters are the ones MOST LIKELY to have paid. I'm not sure what the people at the fool were thinking. They are giving freebies to the people most likely to pay, while alienating the rest of us (no one likes to be told they aren't worthy). Doesn't seem like the best business plan. I wonder if this was one of those business meetings where the boss comes up with a bad idea and no one had the courage to say anything...
