Is self-amuse like self-abuse?

Being in the IT field for over 30 years, I will be the first one to tell you "nothing" is free when it comes to the internet nor anything connected to it.

Never has been, never will be. Ads, mining data, tracking usage, etc... is the price you pay when you turn on your computer and click on an internet browser. If you have problems with it, turn off your computer. Even when you listen to the radio you have to pay the price of ads. (Remember the song by RUSH, "The Spirit of Radio") Maybe someday they will update that classic witht the "The Spirit of Internet"

It's very simple: when you're using a free service, you are the product.

I really have become unaware of the commercial adds on the forum(s) and do not even glance at them. What is important to me is the real world experiences reported by those using a product. That guides my thinking on acquiring or not acquiring another widget or service.

How much does it cost to be a supporting member and what are the benefits? Can you make all the adds go away?

Perry,

It costs $20/year. You get more photos, PM's stored and I'm not sure what else. You can make the ads in the posts go away, but I've still got them on the right.

It gives you a warm fuzzy feeling of belonging....

Plus after you have signed up for the second time, we'll teach you the secret handshake.

I can't even find the link to sign up, let alone what you get. Maybe someone who knows the link will post it.

Ken

Oh - it automatically renews? That's great! I thought I signed up in March last year and wanted to renew but the link says it auto-renews. Do I get new stickers too?!?! :-)

I get new stickers each year. However I don't allow mine to auto renew. I prefer to have more control over such things.

I hated the ads in the threads/ new post section, sorry. Thank you so much for allowing supporting members to get rid of them. It was easy to do. john

Supporting member? If you have read read any of my 4000+ posts, I think you will agree that my support for the folks on this site far exceeds the benefits of a $20 contribution.

Still, the money is worth the free advertising you get. You are an asset to all AS owners but the money is a drop in the bucket. Jim
