I know some people want everything for nothing, but it does cost money to run a website -- even for non-profits.Anyway, this sounds like a loophole.Say I know fifty people who want to take advantage of the advice of some Fools. But, they don't want to pay the $29.95/each. So they pool together the $29.95 and one of them signs up. The "one" paying person forwards all messages to a "free" web message service, of which the other 49 people are members.Talk about leverage.And, frankly, I don't know whether the user agreement says anything about it. If lawyers are involved, I'd be surprised if it didn't. At any rate, dbphoenix might be right about the Fool.com not wanting to spend money chasing down every abuser.That may be true. But, it's always been the threat of legal action that keeps most people inline. If a mass revolt (to overwhelm Fool.com's legal resources) actually occurred, I'd be very surprised.So the question is: Are you feeling lucky?
