Correct me if I'm wrong...
there is a core community that was, and is, still here.
same spirit, same love of boating, some different names.
Members' use of, and participation in the forum, evolves as the community matures.

People come and go, the sum is still greater than the parts.

I doubt IB cares if the paid subscription model fades-
they're more interested in ad $$$, long term.

I pay nothing for any type of internet. Free is not a bad word.
I get Wi Fi for free now also, just go to any fast food joint and wam, I am in your face.
SOS is still a honest great site for info. Do not beat it up cause OSO has large pockets to wich one can waste money on.

I hope no one still pays to look at porn sites too. If so, time to move ahead & get out of the 90's.

To all those that are paying....if what is being said is correct re bandwith..advertisers..value added by everyone...why are you paying to be here, when you clearly dont need to ???
Now you're starting to understand... The advertisers pay all the bills here and more. Paying members just add to the pocket lining. The members provide the content, which brings more members/traffic, which in turn brings in more advertisers, and more $$$.

If all paying members were to stop paying tomorrow, the bills would still be paid by the advertisers, just as it's done on all the other free forums (which the vast majority are free)... this is nothing new and the owners of higher traffic forums still make out quite well.

Now I can understand some members that indirectly profit through this site feeling the need to chip in a little extra. Folks can and do make their living through these sites, even if they don't directly advertise. In these cases I would suggest it's not only money well spent, but partly deserved by the forum owners...
