    Doug,

    Curt is a man of principle, high morals, and holds himself to the highest of ethical standards.... To assume he would bend the rules for a few extra bucks is just plain wrong!..... Our man can't be bought!

    Wait did you say a six year ADM subscription and a Quad Sponsorship fee... MMM If you throw in a case of his favorite Beer (Apparently all it has to be is yellowish in color and have bubbles to qualify), you may get a deal....

    Obviously this is all nice and warm and fuzzy but doesn't answer the points below:

    1. I can only send pm's to 2 people at a time (This one is answered thanks to Curt I know)
    2. I never get reminders when a thread I have subscribed to is updated. No matter which browser I am using (IE, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, insert browser name here...
    3. I am deleted from thread subscriptions all the time for no reason
    4. I am not auto subscribed to a thread when I contribute

    I'm happy to contribute financially and would feel even happier knowing that I was supporting a site that worked in the same way as others do.

    Perhaps it is best you do not contribute then Paul. I don't think we'll be able to meet your standards, particularly when you've placed the amount of emphasis on the above. Just to let you know though, I choose to NOT be alerted to every thread I participate in.... and I own the place so I suppose it is all in what is truly important to you. BTW, before you even start on the tapatalk, it is a software upgrade.

    FWIW Those are the biggest pains in the ar*e on some other sites, notably on Yapping Dogs...

    Last time I checked supporting was optional, damn I hate these wonderful free website
