Ok Barry, what website do you own and where are the financial records for that website? I can produce actual invoices for the cost of this website because, I own it...If have no idea where the figure of "$20k per year of web expenses" comes from, but it has no relation to reality.
Then, there is the fact that the Trustees have done some preliminary investigation as to the cost of a web update and the numbers start in the 5 figures! Somebody does have a distorted view of reality, you!
Barry, out here in realville, we know that somebody has to pay the bill. Of course, you don't even think that there is a bill. Well, there is and either the members pay for the website and the non-members ride free for the exact same features, socialism, or, the members pay for the website and only the members get the features,free market. Do you really live that sheltered of a life that you do not understand that?And what free markets and socialism have to do with this discussion I have no idea...
Barry, why do you want to go right back to what you were doing, arguing, when you got mad the last time and quit the club? Why not state your ideas and avoid calling people disconnected from reality because their ideas are different from yours? This is not the Samba.
