This has come up several times over the years... let me restate previous statements...
There will never be a charge for any service, content, or feature associated with being a member and contributing to ATS. All site features, perks,
and technology -- at all levels -- will always remain free for members.
From time to time, we may examine specific "premium" content for which there may be a fee or purchase requirement (such as our book). One of the
things we're looking at is a fee-based subscription model for an electronic magazine that contains higher-tier content from recognized investigative
journalists, authors, and other professionals who deal with the content areas covered by ATS.
But to be clear... there will never be fees of any type associated with ATS membership, nor will their ever be upper-tiers of membership privileges
that require fees.
