The Nugent site has recently started charging new members twenty bucks a year for the privilege of posting there (old members get a one year free grace period). I know bandwidth is not free, and boards cost to operate. But would you pay twenty bucks a year to post on a message board (as opposed to voluntarily donating to a board you like)? I see this as a way for a board to atrophy and die, because it'll get no new members at all, and the old ones will slowly go away. What do you think? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
