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.

example:
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?

But if we had it that way the threads would have to be viewed in threaded mode.


And I just can't handle clicking that much.


By the way, is this just a joke or are you trying to make a point? You're hard to read. (hah! get it?)

That is a good idea Ed? But I think there may be a way around the fee? I'm not too smart, but I'm sure that the resourceful nature of the highly trained martial artists here will be able to defend from your hand-in-pocket-jitsu?

Let's hear what other folks have to say?

you should know me better Joel...I'm joking WHILE making a point.

I like my 'bikepath tollbooth' idea better anyway...but lets see where this thread's idea goes...

and Matt, I noticed you put everything in the form of a question so you don't get paid for your advice.

My Canadian penny costs $0.03 to make. So how does my money fair for this?

I think it was Joel who brought it up last year...that folks could/should consider contributing to the maintainence of the website. Jokingly, I recall trying to calculate member fees...something based on so many cents per post (bill is in the mail).

It would certainly cut down on the number of BS posts. (Yes, mine included. )

It would probably reduce your number of members.
I know I certainly would not come here if it cost me anything. I'm already paying electricity and cable bills.

Ryan, I'm afraid we're going to have to bill you extra for lack of sense of humor.
