Paying for PDF's? Answered

I will not pay for for Pro membership.  You guys are getting too big for your britches. You took what was a interesting site and made it suck.  While some of the information is clever and worth saving, none for it is worth giving you access to my money.  I may never visit your site again.


Some time when you're feeling important;
Some time when your ego's in bloom;
Some time when you take it for granted,
You're the best qualified in the room;
Some time when you think that your going,
would leave an unfillable hole;
Just follow this simple instruction
And see how it humbles your soul.

Take a bucket and fill it with water;
Put your hands in it up to your wrists;
Pull them out - and the hole that remains;
Is the measure of how much you'll be missed.
You may splash as you please when you enter;
You may stir up the water galore;

But stop - and you'll find in a second ,
That it looks just the same as before.
The moral of this is quite simple;
Do just the best that you can,
and be proud of yourself - but remember;
There is no indispensable man

Sites like this COST MONEY they need people to WORK for them and they need paying.

Do you work for free ? Or do you like to eat, and raise a family, like the guy who invented this site did ?

Your zero count of instructables and zero count of help for those looking for answers makes you into a complete free-tard doesn't it ?

You won't be missed.

Well, I guess steve won't be getting the "best answer" this time.

Oooo-oooh! That's the noise I made when I read the part about free-tards. :D

. That pretty well shattered the Be Nice policy but I still have to give it a +1. ;)

Seriously? Seriously? You'll be back. I can pretty much guarantee it. Think about what you'll be missing.

Also, take some time to read some of the other posts. They explain exactly why there evenare Pro memberships.

You signed up just for that?
Next you'll be complaining about all the e-mails you're receiving...

Of course, as others have hinted, you could get off your arse and do something creative/useful, hope your writing skills are better than your attitude and pray that someone features you. Then you won't have to pay for pro.....

Hey, I am sorry you feel that way, this is a great website, and is an excellent community to be a part of. However, as you may or may not know, its all about the content that users provide! As Steveastrouk pointed out, this site does not make enough money from adverts to run for free, so they have to make the money somewhere, otherwise the site would fail. The upside is we want to reward people who provide the site with great content! A featured instructable earns the person who posted it 3 months worth of pro membership for free! So, before you complain, how about you take the time to actually give, instead of just taking?

Or write a GOOD instructable and earn your pro membership by being featured.  Contribute good stuff to the site and get good stuff out of it.

So print the HTML. It's not that hard.
