Man, you know how much money I spend on beer and beer related materials? It is my duty give $25 to the site that's responsible for it.

The way I see it, its like paying club dues. I belong to a brew club locally, pay an annual fee, get a free t-shirt and info on all sorts of awesome beer stuff and a discount on the annual bus trip/brewery tour.

Premium 'club' members get perks like a bigger inbox, avatar, additional forums, a nifty decal in the mail, and a reach around from Revvy.

I became a paying member after I realized a simple fact.

All the brewing knowledge I learned here in my first 6 months was worth far more than $100. Think about how much you've learned and what it's saved you in bad beer alone.

Now go make the donation. It's sitting in your paypal accound collecting dust anyhow.

And yes, I have received a ban for talking about ______ ________ _____ ___ __ and ___.

But you still gotta PM Tex for access to certain places.

I have heard of some of the pettiest reasons for not paying.

'Tex sent me a reminder my subscription was running out, so I'm not going to pay just because he pissed me off.'

Do whatever you want, but I'm not sorry and money is not easy anymore.

It's twenty bucks to get your feet wet or you can pay once; I figured I was in Homebrewing for the rest of my life, so I just anti-upped and bought the Lifetime. Do you realize I never have to delete a PM here for rest of my life?

You sir, are correct. I know money is tight for a lot of folks. Well, if you can't support, then don't - but don't f'ing bitch about it....

Nothing much to add here, I feel like it's worth more than what I pay for the knowledge I have gotten from here. It takes a lot to run a website and the least I can do is show my support. And the super secret handshake and the decoder ring really make me feel like a kid again.
