Since time and effort are money, I propose that accounts are setup such that it costs 2 pennies to read people's advice in each post.
someone asks (questions are free): "What MA should I take up?"
in order for you to read the reply, a 2 cent 'lurker fee' is automatically deducted from your account to the person who gave the advice....or you may end up paying the $0.02 to read a moron's advice, but oh well, let the buyer beware.
whaddaya think? everyone who puts advice in here should get compensated for that, right?
