I have only recently discovered your boards. Like millions of other Americans, I found myself in a difficult situation and was forced to file bankruptcy in 1998. I have learned many valuable lessons from my experience. I am a licensed lawyer, now stay at home mom with some time on my hands. Now that I am in a position to try to help others, you change your format and want to charge me for the privilege of helping others. Check out my posts on the Living under Bankruptcy board. I don't post on any other Fool board, I hope to someday; but right now, my focus is living on what I earn and paying off the rest of my debt.

For most of your posters, $5 a month is nothing; for some, it is prohibitive. For me, the issue is why should I pay $60 a year to provide free (non-binding) legal advice to your subscribers.

Maybe the bigger question is whether you, the Fools, are willing to underwrite the cost of few message boards for the greater good. Or do you just want those of us who don't have assets to invest to go away?
