I don't think calling people that don't support the site "freeloaders" gets them to support.

    If anything I think it gives people another reason not to support because they're like "fuck you browbeaters, I'm not supporting on principle now. :no:"

    Here's what I thing Dawg should do instead to increase the number of supporters here.

    When everyone logs in you're greeted by a pop-up message that says, "Dawg Shed's entertainment is funded by supporters like you, thanks for your support." Then maybe put a picture like this in there, too.

    This simple message thanks the supporters the site already has and reminds non supporters that their future support will be appreciated.

    I never have encouraged that or even said i condone it. People do that on their own.

    Gil handled the subject in a surprisingly calm and articulate manner when oski tried to take him to task on it.

    I know, I'm just saying I think it has the complete opposite effect of what they're trying to do.

    it wasn't the main focus of a thread or anything it was just kind of a spontaneous type thing.
