    Why Should Any Of Us Pay For Chat On EP?

    There are endless advertisements on this site that have been known to make navigating the site very difficult. Instant messaging is an old internet feature. There is no reason we should pay for a service here we could get free somewhere else while our stories are used to enhance...

    I Need Money For Other Things

    Like bills. And hair appointments. And groceries. And a few other things that escape me right now...not to mention spur of the moment or incidentals that come up. When I joined EP, there was much made of that this site was FREE. Now, every other post or three, I get an invite...

    A Major Reason

    Beyond the fact that I fail to believe EP is not sustainable through offering ad space to good companies - You know like those listed on Kanjoya? I also do not have money to pay for services such as chat which I can get free on almost every other website I frequent. The photo I...

    If for no other reason

    than I never chat! I seldom text too. In the time it takes to say just a few words, I can pick up a phone and actually talk to someone and there is no miscommunication. They know when I'm joking or serious - I don't have to use some inane cutesy smiley faces. Most of all, I...

    Chat Is Not In My Budget

    There are so many free chat programs that I can't see me paying to chat anywhere. I've made webpages and installed ad supported, free chat to them. Chat is like air, it's everywhere.......well except on EP where there's a fee involved.

    In Spite Of It All...I'M Staying

    I am very disappointed that EP has opted to throw its members under the bus by charging for chat. No matter how EP spins this issue, by stating that paid supporters deserve perks and it costs money to maintain the site, I find the entire concept reprehensible. Personally, I feel...

    There are advertisements already on this site

    to generate revenue, I have no intention of paying for the chat feature, especially at $7 per month. In this day in age, that is crazy expensive for a feature they should just make free.

    Does It Cost To Chat On Your Phone?

    I don't remember agreeing to pay anything on my phone when I signed up. I've been chatting using my phone. Am I getting charged?
