    why is it that no matter what happens, it seems that anytime a newbie posts it always ends up as a "pay money and join".. i mean they will join eventually if they think its worth it. Why push it so much, it might drive some people away.

    I just turned orange agan after a week or so of blue. I didn't realize how different it is now between paying and non paying, I.E. browsing the forums and participating, replying to PM's, etc.
    I've been so busy lately, and I only use the lounge, so I was thinkin I wouldn't bother renewing. If I didn't have a couple extra bucks sitting in paypal, I wouldn't have.

    But, I'd say the hype over orange and blue is a little tedious to see, and from your example, discouraging more than encouraging to a newbie/blue.

    Kind of sad that it took 12 posts before anything technical was brought out.
