    DU membership is now a mandatory $60 per year. no more "donations"

    This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by tkmorris (a host of the General Discussion forum).

    annual membership needs to be renewed so looked into that and seems like the process has changed since a year ago. worth the $$ I suppose as DU is a for-profit business web site, and membership gets rid of the ads for things I will never use in a million years, especially all those ads for republicans and their agenda. just see that the format is different.

    Literally the only web site I've ever paid for...except for the hosting of my own. I think DU is worth every penny. It makes the lunatic, racist, misogynistic, conspiratorial rantings on CU so much more fun to read!
    Why not reup here Atman??? It's free.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    So, pay $60 a year and you get to take away ads? Really? That's pretty heinous, if you ask me.

    Really, Toast? Really?

    I don't suppose you could point out any of those posts could you?

    Should kill their membership with it being a mandatory $60 for all those unemployed and or homeless people they have on their site.

    We could make that deal for a whole lot less than $60 a person for those who don't want to see ads. Those ads pay very, very little, don't begin to nearly cover the costs. That DU guy is a businessman, though, $60 a year. Wow! I don't think it's worth it, but maybe I'm prejudiced against DU.

    I don't feel sorry for them one bit. Remember, a sucker and their money are soon parted, and DUmmys are the biggest suckers on planet Earth, bar none.
