    And it will remain the same because of human nature. Other forums I am a member of use a pay to sell. You have to pay a fee (that is not a Tariff, Penalty, nor is it a Fine) to be able to sell. Then there are grades of sellers like supporting vendors, which is an upgrade and of course costs more.

    If you have a better idea, instead of "just wallet up", let's hear it. Because I don't see that happening.

    Paul,

    I do! Gentle confrontation moving into accountability works wonderfully. I'll start with this seller and the rest of you follow my lead.

    Chuck,

    I'm assuming that there's at least 50-100 "regulars" here. If we each donated $200 per year would that cover the shortfall?

    I’ll just say it: I think anyone who views this site more than... say... 30-40 times a year should donate at least 100 bucks annually.

    This donation idea was not to put the financial bourdon on any particular group....

    It was, again maybe naively and optimistically, for all to contribute a little so this club doesn't feel like... like I do, in my very thirsty '73 with it's small stock gas tank, wondering if I'm go'n make it to the next station....Yeah, the club will make it to next station... but it sure would be nice not to have to be looking at the gauge all the time...

    NONE of us 'secret circle' have taken anything out of the club.... for over 20 years
    However our support people and venders do... rightfully so

    After reviewing some of the other sites and how they operate... and realizing how loyal and addicted our message board members are... I thought, maybe naively and optimistically, that it wouldn't be too much to ask...

    BTW - This site hasn't gone down for over a year - but when it did, the response afterwards sounded like confessions from a substance recovery center... and I was right along with'm

    Ö Just say'n

    Please join this club and contribute...

    Well go for it then, man! I have a lot better things to be doing with my time. Make fun if you want, but the supporting vendor/mandatory contributions for sellers do work. Hard to argue with success!!! Another hidden benefit is it helps to weed out the shysters. But what the hell do I know???
