Re: presentation and NOISE
I suspect that Blue would like to have the $250 and the traffic and referrals and he probably sees it as an "and" and not an "or" situation. Mind you, if Blue was principally interested in eyeballs and not membership cash, this would be a no charge site and he would not be interested in taking donations as per the second last line at the bottom of the page. I do recall him putting the lifetime memberships on sale for the express purpose of acquiring funds to buy new equipment and hire a couple of talented bodies
Some might think that those who do not pay, but use the site, are hypocritical and cheap. But on the other hand, some may not be able to afford the $250 membership and i can understand why remaining in the group is important to them despite their impecuniosity. Perhaps we should give the benefit of the doubt to those who do not have premium or lifetime memberships.
No offense to anyone but if contributions were to have a value placed on them, some premium members, who will remain unnamed, would be getting paid by IV for what they contribute here.
