not a slam, by any means, I attempted to follow the links on THIS thread and was able to sign up twice, but later got a message I was removed (there were several others making mention they had been locked out, so I figured it was a server issue...). Not once was there mention there was a signing fee. (that's not the issue, if I could, I would) The problem I saw was there was no mention there was a fee and I wondered what was wrong and didn't know there was a fee for VIP membership. This might clear some things up, I know I would have went about things differently it I'd known there was a fee.
Please don't take this as me being upset, just making a point that it should be a bit more clear, that's all.
