Subject: RE: Mudcat Trouble
I've been doing non-commercial radio for 26+ years. People tend to think the airwaves are free, and nowadays people seem to think that most websites are free too.

I don't think people realize how expensive a proposition this is. We are all accustomed to checking in at Mudcat and using all the great features. We don't consider the costs and sacrifices that have gone into this. What Max is done is create a website - no, make that a community - that is different than any other.

Ask yourself how many times PER DAY you check on this site. The conversations, the information, the laughs, etc... this is a site that many of us have come to love.

While we want to keep coming here for our daily fix, it just might go away unless we all kick in. A couple of bucks per month from each of us would help keep this alive and thriving. Think of how much we spend on a daily newspaper, beer, lottery tickets, gum or some other item that makes the day a little better. Isn't Mudcat worth a few dollars? Max isn't asking for help to buy a new Mercedes, he just wants to pay the bills and in turn help each of us.

Give till it helps.
