The spirit of the spirits
Yay, now I gotta pay for what was free. For real is anybody gonna pay for that. I surely won't. Less ads are of no interest to me, uBlock does that already and is FOSS. Badge just shows that you are dumbass wasting money on useless trash. I'm pretty sure that those "premium" forums were free before update. This is just straight up insulting and backstabbing.It's only twenty bucks per YEAR. Not terrible. You get fewer ads, a badge, ability to get rid of the sidebar, and access to premium forums.
