Paid Subscription Expiry Notice

  1. Oct 10, 2012 #1
    I received an email reminding me to renew my paid subscription to PF and I did so. However, I found the wording of the email to be slightly misleading. The relevant portion stated:
    This statement could lead one to believe that an individual who didn't renew would no longer be able to read or post on the forums. I don't think that's the case. Also, the above statement reminds me of typical phishing emails ("If you don't click on the below link, access to your bank account will be removed."). In fact, my first thought when reading the email was that it was a phishing attempt.

    I suggest that the statement quoted above be replaced by a sentence similar to:

    If you do not extend your subscription, you will lose the benefits enjoyed by PF Contributors.

    You're absolutely right! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. It is stock content that I never thought to check out. We'll change it shortly, thanks!

    Having seen your lovely Pre-Raphaelite avatar (Lady of Shallot? ) I am almost tempted to go for it.

    Is there an avatar for Lord of Leek? If not, I'd settle for Chevalier de Chive.:tongue2:

    We are beset with Philstines on this thread. Also, she's pretty hot.
