    We non-supporters are like smokers now. We've been ostracized, insulted, and there's not as many of us around anymore. We are sneaking around while trying to not be seen as much due to the humiliation. I am breaking down.

    I don't understand this whole supporter thing - when I first came to the saloon I came because the other place shut down and they directed us here. I thought it was a cool place to see what other hss 'fans' were up to.

    I didnt even realize there was a supporter request until I got a message saying to pony up $

    I honestly don't understand why they don't take advertising $ to support the site if they can get it.

    You couldn't be the new smokers. If you can't afford $5, how the fuck could you afford a pack of cigarettes?

    Dawg should embrace non-supporters. Afterall we are 90% of his visitors. He has got to also understand, this place is where you can say stupid shit- mostly anonymously. It's not necessarily the 5 bucks, but giving up that privacy, because you can't pay anonymously. Maybe if you set up a PO box, I can send you an envelope with 5 bucks and my username.

    But Dawg, you went about this the wrong way, instead of saying, Hey we need to drum up supporters because this site has expenses, you went the other way and alienated a lot of people. Its your site and you can do whatever you want though
    Ads would probably be the best bet, have an ad on the second response for each thread and I guarantee many people will click it from time to time to support the site.

    And you're a STAFF MEMBER. :gig:

    Imagine the heights the OP could ascend to if only he had a spine.

    One way to avoid feeling insulted is not giving a shit about gay perks.

    Unless you're up to some illegal shit, exactly what reason do you have to remain completely annonymous? It isn't as if by becoming a supporter my personal info is splashed all over this website. Pretty sure that Dawgs doesn't get all your info either. They just get the money.

    The irony is that it's a Conservative Texan begging for hand-outs.
    But we know it's all about the power with this kid. Being in charge and getting his ass kissed is way more important then having an open forum were everyone is equal.
    If you can't afford your shiny new toy... Sell it, close it down or just bite the bullet and sell advertising.

    Manipulation and strong armed tactics isn't the answer, in fact you're not helping this place grow, you're just going to destroy it.

    I would almost consider supporting ironically, just so I could change "Maverick" to "Smug Leech".

    "This kid"?
    Clearly, you know nothing at all about Dawg. Feel free to continue with your ignorant comments though. :facepalm:

    And if he closed down, where would you go to whine? Why don't you go there now?

    At least they give a reason. Unfortunately, as a non-supporter, I had no way of knowing who it was from.
