While I'm entirely sympathetic to the problems of financing and running such a large site... I simply wouldn't be interested in paying towards it. The
signal-to-noise ratio is already absurd, to the point I occasionally feel we
should be charging you
for standing up to some of the
absolute drivel that gets passed off as fact and/or logic.
I kid, I kid
Well, sort of.
I still visit (and often) because of the occasional golden thread full of excellent insight and discussion, but there aren't enough of those happening
to keep me here if I had to pay for it.
If it's free I'll use it. If it's ad supported then I'm a bit of a wizard with Adblockers and Greasemonkey. If the effort to get to the content passes
a certain point then I'd rather walk away than pull out the wallet.
Is my approach nice and cuddly and supportive of the community? No, but I'm not that sort of guy. You did ask for feedback though
Besides, if I gave in to every site begging for money I'd end up blowing most of my wages just on subscriptions, a fwe bucks here, a few bucks
