    worth what?

    the ads are removed, otherwise, you just feel nice inside knowing that you contributed money to keep this site operation and enjoyable for all..

    it's peanuts, pay it :)

    I don't want to say that it's worth it, I want to see that it's worth it, or at least read it or something. May we have an example as to what lies on the other side. ;)

    It's really not that big of a deal.. you've been registered since July so give it some more time... Stick around, see if you like MR, see if you think it's a site worth contributing to. Then decide. No need to rush in and do something if you don't feel ready...

    I wasn't serious with the return policy. And as for liking the site, I do. I came over here from Think Secret and I began to wonder all thats included for the $25 thats all. I mean the ads that are here are unintrusive or obstructive, I was just curious as to the extras like if it included real-time chat for the subscrivers seeing as though all the topics seem to be covered in the public forums.

    Man, I really feel attacked with all the direct Moderater responses and the god this and goddess that. :eek: :(
