Look, the guy is entitled to allow the market for his site to determine what or if he requires financially in return for what he puts in. 50$ for a "lifetime" elite access is the same as free guys. Anyone that won't or can't pay that should not have capital at risk in the markets.

LOL! This is true. Yet we are a fickle bunch.

Let's face facts here - if you went to the market to buy all the stuff that's on this site for free - it'd cost you $1,000's...

Tell you what Mike - for each fickle contributor that leaves because of this, I will be part of a team that contributes something of equal value.

If anyone wants to join me in that. I would be more than happy to share the load.

BTW - I recently spoke to a "trader trainer" who thought he should be allowed here for free.

He told me, in all seriousness that he refused to pay $50 on principle because he had so much to offer.

In fact, he took up about $500 of my time ranting on about it.

Sounds like he's exactly the kind of person we don't need here. Just guessing but he probably has an inflated sense of self worth...

This is a market...really the last true bastion of Capitalism in the World. Do you really think that a "system" or indie seller if they where even 60% legit, could make more money selling their "method" than they could trading it? That is pure angry male bovine dung!

A "trader trainer" OMG I'd like to arm bar that guys arm right off then either choke him with it or beat him over the head.

Those guys are ALL chartatans (sic) they wage war against the weak in an attempt to use their dreams to leverage the last few dollars out of the unknowing.

It is for sale because the author can't trade it? Or the author can't trade it more effectively that what he can steal by selling it to the unknowing. Trader trainer...my buttocks!

Again, this makes me want to share or journal everything I can. Trader trainer! Im so out of balance now I think the only way to recover is to go fishing.

Go For It

I have mentioned this before that if a trader (or wannabe trader) does not see value in this great site, then there is nothing more to be said about that. A few thoughts that come to mind:-

1) Let's have the threads open for reading but downloads restricted to Elite - this will allow "general viewership" of the site (and evaluation of interest) and therefore gets the advertisers happy, but at the same time ensures a better profile of members who are in the real meat-and-potatoes of things.

2) Let's poll the current non Elite members and see how many of them are willing to pay the miniscule amount to become Elite (and enjoy not only fabulous downloads, ideas, etc. but also the humour from folks like 'ThatManFromTexas). This poll will quickly give us an overview on what the interest level is.

3) BM has put in an enormous amount of work in getting the site started; a lot of folks (and it's a long list) have developed and shared indicators, trading ideas, etc. It truly riles me no end to see these become the latest product to be sold by the snake-oil salesmen. As a community we need to protect ourselves, and if that means $50 then it is a negligible amount in the bigger picture of things.

In short, Go For It!!

haven't read all the posts in this thread but as far as I'm concerned if you start
restricting downloads more than you already do aka the 'elite' section you can
forget about me remaining a member

if you want money get some advertisers

you're sounding like one of those Chinese sites that requires either money or
contributions before a member can go up a level in order to download something

in fact I think I'll piss off now

if you've ever contributed something for the greater good and then see it sold by someone when they have NO right to do so, then you can understand where this is coming from. i don't see mike as wanting or needing more money at all. i think he is wanting to protect what is our's and i commend him for that effort.
