Chasing the Ark with my little row boatSubmitted by RogueBeekeeper on Thu, 08/21/2014 - 23:57
I'm one of the new people from that one day that the "Ark door" was opened and we were allowed to subscribe again. Believe it or not I have been following the site since at least 2011 during the run up to the 2012 republican primaries. The DP came up when I was searching for more information on Ron Paul and I've been coming back ever since.
Now I feel like I should explain myself a bit. It wasn't really my style to pay a subscription fee to chat it up with a bunch of people that were probably way smarter than me in the comments and to vote on posts. I may have tried to sign up once but registration was only open on Wednesdays and by the time I was serious about doing it the "Ark" door was closed.
When it was finally opened back at the end of July I was excited to finally contribute my part (intellectually and financially). That is when I learned that subscribing could be free anyway. The irony right? I could have been pestering you people for years! Anyway, I decided to go ahead and contribute some money anyway (maybe I'll make a post about contributing to causes you believe in later...?) and sure enough the paypal link was broken so I couldn't become a new member after all.
This may have happened to many of the 100 or so people that tried to make an account and couldn't. I just called the number from the email in paypal and got it figured out that way. Michael is pretty great for doing that. He said that I wasn't the only one with this problem so if you didn't make it in and you have that contact info then I'd go for it. I'm so excited to be here!! Thank you for having me!
ps. I'd bet an ounce of Platinum that there are at least 10,000+ unique individuals just like me that never bothered formally joining either ;)
