Hi, Max. I appreciate the efforts to generate the funds you need to keep this going. I have to admit, I would rather pay a monthly subscription than buy more mugs that I won't use and more T-shirts that I won't wear. The value I get is from the Mudcat discussion, not stuff. I would much rather have you using your extremely valuable time helping the Mudcat grow, rather than selling stuff.
So, if you want to create a voluntary subscription service, I'm in. I spend as much time following the threads as I do listening to the public radio stations that I belong to.
