you can get it for free though. its like those places where its free but there is a suggested donation, which only chumps pay. the only difference is you get a bigger avatar. but who really wants to see a bigger picture of your ugly dog?

Hey, they aren't chumps. They are just helping the forums. I don't have a credit card so I can't help.

I guess that makes me a chump. However at $25 I still feel that it is one heck of a value. I have saved much more than the $25 on purchases that would have ended up being a mistake thanks to the posts by the members here. I also enjoy my time here. How many other forms of entertainment are there that only cost $25 for 30 years?

I'm sure that most people that have been here for a while feel that the information they have received has been worth far more than $25. If you don't feel that way then that's fine. They probably already know everything.

As for donating or not that is up to you. I don't know your financial situation nor do I care to know it. I know I don't hold it against anyone if they don't donate. I doubt that anyone here does. Who knows, one of these days you may change your mind about the place. If you do then you can donate.
