    If every one had to have a credit card on record and posting costs 2 cents. As in my 2 cents. Imagine the revenue generated and the cut down on superflous petty posts.

    I would be much poorer as would a lot of those multi thousand post guys but I thought the idea was worth a laugh.

    Everyone that has to tell you what cell phone they own at the end of every post gets charged ten cents for spamming.

    Lol does that show up when I post? I really dont know. If so it is something I would like to know how to turn off.

    I know I mentioned it to explain poor texting work but I Am curious if it shows up when I post.

    Thanks TTM. By the way to kiss ass a bit. I have always dug your posts and they seem to be the work of a thinker.

    It's not that silly, There is a forum, I'm sure there are others, with a huge number of members that pay something around $10 a month to make essentially the same inane posts we do. There is a difference, they can talk about just about anything. The sensitive people and nannies are naturally culled from the pool since they wouldn't pay $10 a month to get offended, as well as derided.

    Fred, the max around here (at least that's required if you choose to support TGP) is $50 a year or just a hair over $4 a month...for $10 a month, I'm sure you'd be stirring the **** up. ;) I know I would...wanna get my money's worth. :D

    Combine your idea with something similar to the "like/thank" feature of some forums, and the revenue could actually be redistributed. Charge for posting, but one could earn $$$ with good posts! :D

    (TGP would get a commission of course!)

    2 cents for a "LOL"?

    I would still pay.
