I am also disappointed that you feel this way. You have been a very important part of our community. It is the contributions of each member that makes our community stronger. But please let me be blunt. Is it really the $2 per month that is causing you to leave? If you really wanted to, I bet you could find a dozen ways to save $2 per month. So let's say that the Ground Crew membership doesn't provide $2 worth of value to you in order for you to take the effort to save it from somewhere else. Doesn't the 10% discount on purchases from the many participating retailers and manufacturers save you $24.95 per year? So OK, you don't buy anything from the participating companies. We work really hard to provide great articles and information in the monthly DIRT. I hope you can find some value in each DIRT. And not that I am saying that this has to apply to you, but many of us find it extremely rewarding to spend $2 per month to help others convert and find success using natural organic methods. Second to last, your $2 per month not only provides you with access to the coupons, this forum, video features, the monthly DIRT and more, but it helps to support our research; running of this site; the production of the DIRT, this site and more; our support staff; utilities and other business expenses. I know you can see what we do, and I know you believe in what we are trying to accomplish. I hope you can understand why we are asking for a little over $2 per month in order to support these efforts. Lastly, we appreciate you. We would love for you to continue to be a Ground Crew member. With all this said, if you still feel that you need to go, we will be disappointed, but understanding. We know that you will still be carrying on the crusade.
All my best,
Although I regret to see kbrew leave us, I do think what Doug is saying here is noteworthy and heart-felt. Do come back and visit the forums anyway.
