    email from a pissed Non-Member...

    OK, I get the "I hate you because you charge for Membership" types of email from time to time and normally I reply pretty civilized to them, and some times I have to vent a little. Here is one I just received via email but could not reply do to the fake email address he used, but called himself "Joe Nobody". :dunno:


    Hmmm, I bet you think it is total BS that people charge you for gas, for rent, for food etc..

    I had no idea that God put me on this earth to serve you, to work 12 hour days, to invest thousands each year in CK5 so "YOU" could have a totally free website. I will go tell my wife and 3 year old right now, no more roof over their heads and no more eating food, we are moving into a box in the street so "Joe Nobody" can have a free website!!!

    I am not ripping anybody off, if someone does not like my product they do not have to buy it! This is the same thing as any products, if you feel a new car is to expensive, then don't buy it, buy used or take the bus. Amazing, people do not understand this concept, if you like CK5 great, purchase a membership, if you think it isn't worth it, then that's OK too, simply move on or use the free parts of the site.

    But don't send me an email telling me that I should work for free, would you tell your boss that you no longer want a paycheck and want to work for free?

    Have a nice day
    Steve

    I just started to save the "I hate Steve" emails, so maybe I should start a colum or something. :D I of course would not publish the email address to respect their privacy, the ones that use a real address anyway.

    Well, we all think you do a great job, Steve! Keep it up! And I think $25 is a great deal to be a member of such a great group of people! :D

    You got to love the way he "voiced" his opinion yet killed any credibility with the fake name & addy. :surepal:

    He's probably one of those people that will have his wife call the parts house for stuff because he's too stupid or doesn't have the balls to do it himself. :rotfl:

    Hell yeah!! I spend that much a week on beer:D

    Steve, I think you should make one post that only you can reply to and add all thes e types of email in it. I think the rest of us would get a kick out of it. Oh, and feel free to leave the email addy's in for the "good" ones :whistle:

    how do you post a fake email? Weird.
    I hate people like that... 25 bucks is a lot for some people, but for the quality of this website, and friendships I have made, it has definitly paid for itself. I will be on this site 24/7 until it dies, or I die. :)

    Funny thing is that I feel like I have already gotten far more help than I could have anywhere else for $25. It's a deal at the price. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    The $25 does keep anyone from just coming and lambasting the boards with nonsense and crap

    Keeps the real members coming back too
