What you fail to realize is that I'm asking for a way that I (and others) can support the site, voluntarily. I'm asking for a way I can pay money to support the site.
See this as you may. The only guilt I may feel is using epic without paying my share.
And as to my disdain, it is not for the Lounge per se, it is for some of the people in it. People I CHOOSE not to affiliate with, nor to expose myself to.
I expressed no hostility, I started a thread looking for a way for people to continue to support Epic SKI.
SMJ, I don't get the same feeling from any of the others, who said they wouldn't mind opting out of the lounge, as I do when you post.
You could easily use and support this site without having the lounge in your radar, just send them the money and tell them you don't want the extras, I doubt our adminestrators require you to have the "premium" services. As I see it, you want the status of "Epicski Supporter" underlining your user name. That's what this is really about, isn't it, status.
There's nothing preventing you from using this SKI site as a SKI site, and only that. It seems you just made this poll so you could elicit sympathy for your hypersensitivity, and draw attention to your Supporter status now that you are listed as a member. You want others to make space for you, respect you, and cater to you. Why not just admit it? Why act like this has any more importance than you seeking to avoid feeling your pent up anger?
Again SMJ I'm addressing this to you alone, as I don't get this impression from any others who like your idea.
