    I have found I'm much happier after dropping almost all threads in the Political Forum. :)

    Yup - I did just that. I was willing to accept the amount of ads you previously had, even though they were annoying and I personally thought they were excessive. But you got greedy, and now you get nothing. The ad blocker makes things much smoother, and I am sure I will never think about turning it off again - out of sight, out of mind. So I guess we found a "balance".

    If greedy means getting enough income to keep the site afloat, then sure, he got greedy.

    I wonder where TiVo would be without TCF. But even @TiVo_Ted doesn't pay.

    really? have you read some of the replies to his posts, and in threads he's started? i'd say he pays handsomely. :D

    besides, i believe his contributions themselves are priceless - maybe he's even earned a free complimentary tcf club membership? ;)

    I have no problem with that. I do wish we could count on his help when members have non-technical problems. Give him his own forum. No troubleshooting hardware, just fixing account (or accounting) problems. Act as a conduit just like Margret did. Perfect example: a DM to remove ads from my TE4 box so I don't need to deal with the support people.

    My personal opinion: if you have ever gotten some information here that helped you to either make a smarter purchase or solve a technical problem, you should show your appreciation by becoming a member. If half of us paid for membership, there would likely be no need for ads.
