Default Unlock the debate section for non paying members

It seem as if every time I create or participate in a thread that I am interested in, it gets moved to the debate section and becomes in accessible.

I really enjoy the brewing knowledge and humor on this forum however, I'm not going to give $$ to become a premium member just to view one section of the forum.

I give props to the creator of this site for being able to get $25 from so many but there are other / better ways to monetize your site. (If your interested, ask me how)

That's all..

All the really good stuff happens over there, first rule of member's section, is don't talk about member's section.

This thread will go south quickly, so I'm going to close it now. If TxBrew wants to accept your suggestion and make the entire site free for everyone, he'll let you know. If he wants your advice on running this forum, I imagine he'll contact you privately. I wouldn't hold my breath on either.

I'm always happy to hear suggestions. Please PM me with them.

The issue with open debate and political sections is the trolling.

If you would like to pay great, if not that's great too. HBT is and will continue to be a free resource for those who choose to keep it that way.
