I don't understand pro pricing at all

I've gotta say, I don't get the pricing for pro at ALL. 

You can pay $1.95 a month, every month.

You can pay $2.95 a month, every three months.

You can pay $39.95 for 24 months, one time.

Now, this may just be me, but I see exactly  0 reasons to go with door No. 2. It is the worst of all possible worlds. Why on Terra would I as a new customer pay another dollar a month over the first option (setting aside the third option, maybe I'm not sure about the site or just don't have 40 bucks to blow)? Is it for the privilege of only paying 3 times a year as opposed to 12? Am I paying all that extra money for more patches or something?

IDGI: what am I overlooking here? Enlighten me...

The first option is billed annually, not monthly. The second is billed quarterly (every 3 months).

>D'oh!< Every 3 months of course.

But I still don't understand the why...?
Yeah....  I don't get it either.

The more you pay at once, the more you have committed to the site (and, presumably, the more likely you are to stick around) so this is rewarded by lower costs.  Given the correction to the payment frequency of option 1 it actually works out at

$2.95/month in 3 month chunks (minimum spend $8.85)
$1.95/month in 12 month chunks (minimum spend $23.40)
$1.67/month in 24 month chunks (minimum spend $39.95)

It's the same principle as contract phones costing less per month than PAYG- the difference is merely incentivising a longer duration membership.
