Agreed! I mean, think about how many journals are on this system... Think about the amount of bandwidth it takes to run this site every day. These servers are undoubtedly expensive. If you'd like to have all the benefits without paying, take the code and start your own lol. Then, you'll realize exactly how much time, effort and money, along with other difficult-to-aqquire things, it takes. Here's the thing: the majority of the people who are among the early to sign up are going to pay for the extra service anyway; that's not REALLY who Blurty is concerned with. However, by restricting the majority of the tools available in a full version of blurty to unsubscribing users, it is firstly weeding out useless bandwidth use by people who would otherwise create numerous unattended accounts, and secondly, it is a very useful persuasion tool for you to pay the small nominal (or monthly/yearly? I guess we'll see) fee which keeps the site up and running, and also allows for some form of profit for the people who have put so much time and effort into putting this site together. My two cents.

My two cents... Im an unpaid user. And personally I dont expect to be treated like the people who actually pay for the little extra. Those good people actually pay back for some of the services the good people at blurty provide for us. They let us publicise our lives if we wish. Alot better than the people at LiveJournal and numerous other places where either you have to pay or you have to get a code to use it. If you think you deserve more for not paying you need to take a step back and look at what people at Blurty put into this thing. Keep thinking... and keep thinking and not post again until you understand what you're given. And to let you know, if Blurty went into a pay and code establishment I would be the first in line waving a check. But thats just my two cents...
