I maintain my friendship and commuinication with Uncle Toys. he has not been arouns as much for many reasons stated above. As is always the case, when you have alot more people involved, you get many more varying opinions. As such, differences arise that some people handle well and others do not. This has resulted in some members becoming disenchanted with the board. It is truly unfortunate, but certainly the "fault" of no one. It is merely a function of the evolution of OSO.

I know quite a few that have left based on the membership fee alone. Nobody I know has found another message board that charges a fee. Therefore, people will tend to look elsewhere. This site is still the biggest, best and has the most knowledge. I only pay the fee because I feel that the knowledge and friendship that this site has provided me is worth the tiny bit of money that I have to pay. I have tried to convey this to others but the point often falls on deaf ears. Oh well, sh^t happens!

We need to get you and Diane down to the Island this year and spend the day on the boat with all of us.
We have a new house in Westhampton that you're always welcome at.

Wes has to be around he owns a resin bucket and has to feed it. Besides when I met him he didn't give me the impression of anyone that gets bent out of shape for anything or anyone. A philosophy I try to adhere too also.

I agree, the information here is well worth the price of the top membership, but I can't see the annual fee driving people away. I mean for the pics alone it is worth the money. I don't know what is driving them away. Perhaps OSO should offer these distinguished members a 30-day trial subscription w/ full permissions and see if they want to come back?
