Thread: The Elephant in the Room

  1. #21
    When people pay for something they have higher expectations than when it's free. Insults to one's generation, verbal kicks being declared as helpful advice, declarations that there's no thing called grammar, and the like will make meeting that monthly fundraising goal more difficult, in my opinion.

    Jack, there are substantial costs involved in running a forum the size of WF. And I mean substantial. So by asking our members help it means WF can continue. You enjoy 'free' thanks to the generosity of other members (Friends of WF). You are entitled to your opinion and there as many opinions as there are people. And, if I recall correctly, you are free with your opinions across the forum whether other members agree with them or not. If you want to debate this further, please send me a PM.

    I realise that this forum has been ad-free until now. Is there a possibility of that changing? If it does, hopefully it won't be like some sites where loading times increase exponentially and video sounds are switched on by default. I do wish I were better placed financially as it wouldn't be an issue.

    We don't want that scenario either, phil.

    I'm sorry Joat,
    I totally disagree with that.
    I would like to think that what you're describing there is honest unbiased appraisal.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    Bumping this in the hope someone(s) will stump up the final $10 for this month. Pretty broke myself but managed a derisory contribution earlier in March.
