    Am I the only one who thinks it's a little unfair that regular members -- such as myself -- can't view any damn full size pics or videos? I mean, c'mon...

    I don't think it's unfair. It's what gets people to pay money. :smile: And Rob needs the money! This site doesn't run itself for free...

    The small gold membership fee does offset the costs of operating the site. I like that idea better than having incessant popup ads and banners.

    Werd. Some free sites out there I won't even visit because of the popups and spyware I'm likely to collect. No thanks. I agree with Kotchanski, that's a question not worth asking (for the seventeen-thousandth time).

    We'd have a reduction in new threads of at least 50% if people started doing that, though. :rolleyes:

    I would like to be able to view the large pics without paying too but if that is what they need to do to keep this site running I think it's pretty reasonable.

    You get to complain for free - isn't that enough?

    Even if I didn't want to view large images, I would still pay for a gold membership, to support the site. This is not a business, it's a nonprofit organization.

    Even the highest fee for a gold membership here ($9.99 for one month) averages out to 33 cents a day. That's half the price of a can of Diet Pepsi.

    If you go ahead and pay the $39.99 rate (which is less than you'd pay to go out on a date), you can get a whopping 6 months of gallery access! (And the daily rate goes down to 22 cents).

    I think it's a damn good deal, especially considering the overwhelming awesomeness of this place. :biggrin1:

    I admit that my question was a bit moronic...I apologize.

    Fear not. That question, though redundant, was asked right on time.

    Questions are always repeated at set intervals around here. Watch and see.

    I kind of like popups. They're like playing Whack-a-Mole, and you don't even have to go to the Arcade for it.

    The price is a very cheap one in order to get to see each other naked. And most of us don't have ripped cut bodies or huge breast implants like porn stars. We look real. lol

    I think that it's fair to have a small charge to have all the benefits of this site, even for the free membership you get quite a bit, one of these days I might actually break down and buy a years worth of gold membership, but right now, I can think of other things that I can use the money for, such as groceries or gas for the truck, but you won't hear me complain about my limitations of having the free membership.

    We will forgive you just this once.

    Next time it may mean a spanking, though. :wink:
