I decided some time ago that i would not donate, (not in my own forum accountl/namel/ip adress at least), now replaced by Premium Membership. Its a personal choice brought about from life experience of seeing peoples true colours come out in the way they treat people they percieve to be less, mainly financially, viable than themselves. Think Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman on Rodeo Drive. Best personal example of true colous i can was a salesman years ago at Merlin, Chesterfield, I turned up in a car worth about four thousand, in reasonable, but none branded, worn clothing, not quite scruffy, but not looking particularly wealthy (never been wealthy, life means nowadays Im positively poor!, but thats another story. Suffice to say the salesman didnt get the sales, or the commmission, i got to scare him on a test drive though... My final reason for posting is that due to an advert overlaying im not able to log out of the site because it covers the optionsin my account. Thats was the final straw that drove me to post. I have been increasingly aware, however, that RD is possibly getting to a stage where ads are becoming intrusive in ones experience of the site.I fully understand the need to generate income on such a great site, but have asked myself, numerous times over these past weeks n- if there was this much intrusion by ads, back in 2008, when I joined, would I have got as far as joining, or would the ad riddled pages have swayed my judgementk? Its a balance between revenue and user friendliness n- maybe its just me, either way I usre admin to make a point of experiencing the site as a new joinernon premium member in order to see how new people coming to RD see the site. You could argue n- go premium, and ignore it, im not a stakeholder in the site so why should Ivbe botheredk? Its just me n my quirks, same as waering scruffy clothes instead of a three piece suit to go shopping for high value items n- i like to step back and see the biggervpicture..
