Clan Riffster Posted March 23, 2009 Share Posted March 23, 2009 (edited) I am shocked, irritated and dismayed. What? No outrage? Come on, Man! We were really hoping for outrage! why is this cache available only to Premium paying members, which represent only a tiny fraction of the of the well over 2,000,000 registered accounts at Geocaching.com? Because the cache owner wanted it to be available only to premium members? That'd be my guess. The percentage issue seems largely irrelevant to me. What if PMs were 51% of all active accounts? What if they were 91%? 21%? 1%? The issues would be the same. Of those who opted not to become premium members, there would always be a percentage who feel entitled to the same privileges that we are paying for. What you're not understanding is that if someone aspires to make money off of a job that they love, they must be evil, because money's evil. Right, comrades? This comment is meaningless and adds absolutely nothing to the discussion. Actually, this is one of the more salient posts in this thread. This issue is not about folks choosing not to spend $30 a year for features they do not want to use. Nor, is it about folks who, for one reason or another, believe they can't afford to spend $30 a year for those services. Rather, it is about entitlement. The entitlement mentality is prevalent amongst a particular philosophic/political entity in our country. This group also promotes the myth that money, and the obtaining of wealth, is evil, in numerous wealth envy schemes geared to make "the masses" vote one way or another on particular proposals. Mredria nailed it. Edited March 23, 2009 by Clan Riffster Quote Link to comment
