Pay or Die

I recently received a "Dunning Letter" from the Fal Files Forum, demanding that I pay up............ OR BE BLOCKED.

I used paypal to be safe.

What gives? At the same time or so, my link to the forum was erased, and then my root directory was erased.

I guess we need to pay up more quickly?
Something more nefarious?

I hope the Forum got the $$$$.

You payment request and the weekend outage, I suspect are not related - 'coincidental' but not maliciously so!

I get this Email each month, because I'm set up for the monthly renewal. If you also are set up for monthly, just ignore it. If you are NOT set up for monthly renewal, do so, it's so much easier to deal with.

I never got a notice in 15 years here; especially not on Xmas Day.

I pay mine once a year and like the reminder that its time to pay up to support the FF.

Reading the note, it says, you would loose your paid membership perks and access, not the regular non paid stuff/access.

Just be happy, we're not charged based on our post counts or the controversy we cause!

I was about a month or so late to renew. Nothing bad happened and didn't notice any loss of access or other privileges.
Of course, I'm just a piker compared to you deep pocket silver and gold moneyed folks.

Don't give them any ideas. I would have to pay enough to subsidize to Federal Government.

You're safe until they pick up on word count!

Well.. I did apparently fix the email issue, so pay up! It's an automagic reminder that your subscription is about to expire, nothing unusual or malicious.

Like in automagically? I think you were so much hotter without the voodoo!


YMMV

Surprisingly I didn't get a notice this year and only caught it when my PM Box was jammed.
