Gold Membership Discount Recommendation

  1. Feb 15, 2016 #1
    Just for fun recommendation-

    I noticed that your Gold Membership Forever package advertises "a LARGE discount and is forever!"

    Given that the topic being addressed is an infinite membership, and that the alternative costs for infinite membership tend towards infinity whereas the forever package is constant, the difference in cost is divergent and the forever package should offer an INFINITE discount.

    How can a discount be more than 100%?
    Unless you get money to buy something...

    I'm thinking along the lines of the total amount discounted in dollars. Even if you paid a $1 monthly fee, over an infinite number of months the amount you pay tends to infinity, whereas with the forever package it stays constant. So you've been discounted an infinite amount.
