Why does this site charge people for using avatars, signatures, and getting expanded private message space? This seems kind of crummy to me. A better system would be to charge people to access certain forums or to get some administrative rights. Here is a list of forums that use this system or are completely free. http://forums.cpp-home.com/ http://forums.philosophyforums.com/index.php? http://www.sciforums.com/ http://www.groupsrv.com/science/index.php http://java.sun.com/ http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=16167&TabID=146190 Please post any comments on this issue that you have.
