Pulled the trigger!

Finally pulled the trigger and upgraded to lifetime membership! $40.00, what a bargain! Cheap insurance to support the cause. Nobody can tell me that they haven't experienced $40.00 worth of tech advise, comraddery, and the ability to share the excitement from the site. I put forth a challenge to my fellow members: how about 5 other enthusiasts stepping up with me and spending the $40.00 to upgrade to lifetime membership to support the cause?

maybe when this site was run by a true lotus enthusiast and not a faceless and parasitic corporation that could give a damn about our passion. you missed the boat by a few years.

Wait, don't I support the cause by providing useful tech feedback for people so they keep coming and posting theirs? Don't ads pay for the site maintenance?

This is the third forum I have been a supporter of. All three have been specialty car based. I just feel that such a minor amount of money donated to show support to a great forum is just my way of saying thanks to those who started or maintain such a usefull site. Just want to show my appreciation and do my part to keep things going.

I figured 500+ posts must mean I'll be here a while... lol might as well help pay for bandwidth.
