    I Don't Like It

    I don't like the membership increase at all. I just can't afford it anymore. last year, I supported a few EP members, now even if I wanted to do that, I simply can't. I can't afford that at all. I just can't, I would want to, but I can't :(

    I Cannot Afford That.

    When it was $3 a month, I would have been glad to have paid.  But, now that I have the money to pay for it, it's over $6 or something.  That is really too much of an increase and honestly not worth it.

    Did the Government Take Over?

    Wow, what a price hike!  From $20.00 bucks to 62.55 and then additional funds requested for additional tokens.  Hell, for that price I would expect to own shares in the company and get dividends every year. We, the members are the reason EP exists.  Without us...

    Greed Is Setting In....

    The people who run EP are not immune to human greed. They are  asking for a "voluntary membership" donation. The old policy was to give several options.... $3.00 $5.00 $10.00 $20.00............dollars per/month (or)... $20.00...........dollars per/year...

    And They Want to Add a Fee Hike?

     EP, There was a young boy, who borrowed $5000 from his mother to set up a web site forum.  That was just 6 years ago.  He never asked the membership for a single cent! This forum are given credit by the FBI as being the first to submit evidence worthy of...

    I Can't Afford It.

    I would be a sponsor of EP but the new prices are ridiculous.  So I guess I won't be a sponsor anymore.  They really messed up with that.

    Must Write

    Joined Bob's group so must write something. Just think with the economy going the way it is that raising fee's isn't the best choice.

    Too Expensive

    I mean 60 pluss dollars for a star and the other minor little perks? And I might add that I do still get advertisements! Then again when I became a member the increase hadn't been put in place! I wanted to support another memeber, but now I won't even be able to renew...
