Re: [IP] Pay up

Maintaining the servers and office space ring any bells? People don't 
give these things away (RENT!!! TELEPHONE!!!! INTERNET SERVICE!!!!!! 
THINK!!!!!!) and I'm sorry you don't see the "PAY OFF for the PAY UP"! 
This list has helped many many people with some pretty hairy 
situations, and just because YOU haven't needed any of us, doesn't mean 
that others don't.

You want 'Crucified'? YOU try to make that economic nut every month.

Phone, electric, heat, A/C for the tech room, a little thing like FOOD 
for the guy running all this on his bat with the piffling donations 
from who the heck ever in Corporate, and trying to _live_ ring any 
bells??????? Remember this IS Michael's JOB.

Gadzooks! What IS it with PEOPLE?? We're talking five lousy bucks a 
month!! Why begrudge a man who has busted his ----- trying for us to 
have a 24/7/365 service?

I don't get why some feel every thing's a free ride. It is NOT. Other 
folks are paying for us, isn't it time to step up to the damn plate?

Sheesh!! And people think *I* am a freeloader being on SSI! At the very 
least, I try to volunteer at places (because folks don't think I need a 
job?) to contribute to society.

It is confusing to me then if this list is so 'ho hum useless' (in so 
many words) Why one joins in the first place....Oh yeah, maybe they 
were looking for Support, friendship, advice?

I dunno, that's lust ME......

I am answering because YET AGAIN, MY post was the one selected to 
answer with the "why should I's?", and I am getting pretty darn down at 
people right now. I think the list is worth it. Sorry if you don't
