    "No one in any successful business would advise you to make a move that will cut your current and future customer base by a significant percentage."

    100% disagree - it's called 'targeted or segment marketing' - happens all the time, vs. attempting to be all things to all people. I've worked for a few successful companies, like Apple, Microsoft, Macromedia (acquired by Adobe) and the phone company for over 30 years, hands on involved in over $100,000,000 in sales/service transactions - so I've learned a little about customers.

    There is still a free component - and you get what you pay for, has been my experience. SGN needs to go upscale to justify private paid memberships - we'll see if it accomplishes that. For myself, I'm less concerned about Craigslist flakes, criminals, etc. as I can weed those folks out pretty well on my own - never had a problem with that. I'm hoping the sophmorish, pseudo badassery stuff diminishes and if yes, it will be worth the price of admission on that basis alone. There are plenty of free forums to hang out in.

    Maybe some of you guys can pool your money. Get six guys at a dollar each, and use one account to buy and sell.

    I wonder how many of the complainers are the ones who lowballed everyone else, but sell what they buy at a profit?

    Just a thought.....

    Its kinda funny, I see the same group of people making fun of anyone who raises any resistance to the site changing. Why do you feel the need to point your finger and belittle them for having a different opinion? My hat is off to Norm, he was upfront and honest at the start of this post....This is a business. I don't think anyone commented on that and I think it should be acknowledged...its a business for profit and I respect him for being upfront. Those of you who continue to pick fun and raise the argument about supporting the site and paying for cost are missing the point. Its a time sink no doubt, but monetarily it is easily offset by those of you who want colored names and increased chat capability. You are supporting Norm's business, which is all good don't get me wrong. That is your choice, those who choose not to also have that right. I don't understand how anyone can argue that the site will be better without new members wanting to buy their first gun or sell off great grandpas WW2 rifle for a steal; without them it will become all the main members standing around in a circle with a piece of toast in the middle:) Its not whining to express a different opinion, but it almost seems like you all have a stake in the outcome because you jump on those who express a different opinion....That to me does not create a quality forum where people can ask questions, it makes it exactly what others have stated an elite club where all the regulars can hang out. That is Norms choice, and I support his choice. I feel classic raised some great points but all anyone wants to do is dump on him cause he won't skip his mocha or Big Mac, really? I don't think the argument is that simple for some people. I for one have never paid for internet porn and this site basically equates to internet porn for me. I am reminded of the movie "office space," when he is explaining about how its only a small part of a penny but taken from many dishes. Its only 2 dollars a month but taken from many people it adds up. I have no malice for Norm, don't really know anything about him other than he is the main guy who hosts the site....A site I thought was a hobby because he liked guns.

    Things are being bought and sold. People are making money. Not everyone, but many people are. That changes it. The commerce part of it makes it completely different than your internet porn analogy. Did you resell porn for profit?

    I don't mind paying the 6 bucks, it really isn't gonna change much! There will still be the same trolls, same posts about condiments, being married, gay jokes, useless banter and a popularity contest! Oh well if you don't wanna pay a measly 6 bucks don't! Take it or leave it!!

    Its about VALUE. People need to settle down, pay the $6 and see if in 3 months, they've gotten any VALUE out of it or not.
