If the money was going to someone like Geoff, I'd consider it. But since it'll go to some giant, faceless, corporate conglomerate instead, I say fuck that indeed.

IB may not have a Face, but it does have a Dick!

mkdevo, it's totally worth it.<img src="http://forum.dvdtalk.com/images/premium-members.jpg"> It lets other members know who's really "in" nowadays. <img src="http://forum.dvdtalk.com/images/premium-members.jpg">

Hint: It's you!<img src="http://forum.dvdtalk.com/images/premium-members.jpg">

I was a big proponent of an ad-free paid membership for a number of years, but it was more about supporting the site (and Geoff) back then than anything. Not sure how I'll feel about it today. I guess I'll wait to see what "features" the membership brings along with it.

I might be interested depending on the price and the added features. I don't mind supporting DVDTalk, even via Internet Brands. Still better then XCritic

If you can simply upload pictures on the forum instead of hosting yourself, it would be a big plus. And no ads.

Maybe a "post a message so anyone but ___________ can view"

He said that if you could read his post, he would front your premium membership.

Better luck next time.

When Geoff was running it, I would have paid without giving it a second thought.

I would not pay to support this site under IB.

Like others have said, if this was Geoff id be all over this.

....But I'm a sucker and I want that shiny DVD icon next to my name really bad. Where do I hand my credit over?

If it would keep my posts from being marked read before I have a chance to actually read them, I would probably donate.
