Default Youve been here awhile, why havent you paid for membership?

Ok, I came up with the idea for this thread cause Ive noticed many members here have been here for many years, posted hundred or thousands of times and yet have never bought into the <$20 Supporting Membership. I certainly get that times are tough but most of those Im thinking about arent crying poverty too often.

A Supporting Membership to FTF costs less than a brick of .22's, < one ticket to the movies with popcorn, < one round of happy meals for the kids, < one subscription to gun porn, I could go on forever but <20 bucks to take your arguments and concerns to the next level seems pretty cheap. Its a different world inside, one that putting your money where your mouth is really is a great deal!

NOTDKU is pretty flexible about how you pay, I bet he would take a bag of pennies but it would cost you more to ship it than its worth! I sent him a $20 in the mail the first time and he applied it a week before he received it.

Im not busting anyone's chops here and its not extortion to have a 20 dollar bill as a gateway to great conversations without much grenade tossing or need for overmoderation by our dedicated bunch of cookie munching Moderators.

I think our numbers count more than a 20 bucks, its nuts to think freedom is actually free and anyone will listen to our concerns if were not willing to pony up a <$20 to grow any real influence we might ever inspire!

So, I have been authorized to offer a cool deal if you tell NOTDKU that Web Fos 38 Sent You, He will sign you up for a full year of the inside story and give you a really cool FTF Window Sticker to boot!

Have you signed up yet? What are you waiting for?

There. Fixed it for you. You ought to see inside the Moderator's lounge.

But I agree with your post. I am surprised by the number of members here that do not upgrade to Supporting Members............then get mad when they can't post political or controversial posts or threads.

Agreed! It's definitely worth it!

Don't forget, as a premium member you can lose the ads. I had no choice when I saw the digitally enhanced couple on the tactical underwear poster.

It's well worth the $20 a year to be able to antagonize the mods ALL over the forum.

As far as the condition of the lounge goes, the cleaning lady said she is not going back in there. Pengie kept trying to pull her into the walk-in freezer.

It's a damn good buy for comedy, abuse, great info, and abuse.
We all must stick together, and this is the place.

I have been a member for about a year now I believe... I lurked for about a week or so, and decided that the wealth of knowledge and entertainment was well worth the 20 becks. I still don't post much, I mostly just read and laugh. And I like stickers. Oddly I have a bunch of random stickers but have never stuck them to anything.
