Interesting. There used to be a member/mod here that actually supported this site as a paying member. At least, I think that was so...maybe it was more of use the e-store here. T-shirt or ads? Almost feels like...extortion.
Personally, while I've tried to contribute, I don't feel that I've 'gotten' anything from this site (that I can put a dollar value on anyway). And I'll be darned if I'm going to act as a walking advert for the place.
IS this a community? Or more like a delusion of community (as in the Buddhist sense of delusion)? If it is community...what are my rights and responsibilities? FAQ's don't begin to cover it. And really, if I had a choice of t-shirts that advocated MA...the only one I might be inclined to wear would have our dojo group on it.
Nope. Not buying.
Seems to me people would be more willing to put down for a FA tee-shirt rather than put up with the extra adds...
