    I know there is a discussion for advertisement
    yes this is what I dont understand
    If we have only 62 I mean 62 premium members paying
    And the total is in the 1000's why arent these people paying
    Why am I and the other 62 individuals supporting our blacks?
    Why are they posting like I am?
    Chatting like I am?
    This is crazy to me since we have so many members why do we have to turn to advertising? Why are there so many people so black this black that and cant come up with 10 dollars to help the cause?
    I have talked with Destee
    We need a tiered membership
    5 dollars limited
    10 dollars premium
    If people cant afford this they need another forum!!
    It is amazing to me that people can afford internet
    Time is money so soend all day on here
    Chat all day on here but cant afford to support the cause
    I dont at this point care what others think of me at this point
    Yet people that are paying and supporting know this should be the action


    IF WE DONT SUPPORT OUR OWN WHO WILL???

    We need your support!!!
    If you cant afford atleast become a member
    That is free-If you can get on here everyday and read our Poetry
    Atleast support Our Cause

    Hi Brother Tantrum
    I understand what you are saying
    but this feel more like a discussion
    then a poem Poet.

    Peace

    Now look what you all have done! :hammer: Don't let it ruin your day Tantrum. This is my second year and I haven't worked in two. We are leaders, and there are followers. There are givers and there are takers.

    As a child I recall those who rode in the front of the bus. Those who rode in the back of the bus. And those who ran behind it, jumped on the advertising sign and ducked trying not to show their head to the driver. After a while they were falling off onto the ground or got arrested by the police for free riding on the back like that.

    You even have come to the conclusion that only a few show the love and respond to post. Its a law of averages. We were higher by a few, some didn't continue and maybe can't afford it so it keeps itself stabilized. Yea but what is one to do?

    What everyone needs to know is the donation they give can be written off on their taxes as a loss each year. Add it into the donation amount given to charity. Either way you don't loose by giving. I dropped a hundred Monday watching football with two cousins.

    Fear, Jealousy, Selfishness, Inconsiderate, Uncaring, Not my problem, Why should I pay for the cow.. when the milk is free. :hammer:

    All this great poetry, stored on this here server.. Puff.. cause the gas bill has to be paid before the internet ISP is done. What was that great poem written by you a few months ago....? Server crashed no back-up we going down ...:eeek: :sick: :missu:

    What if all ten thousand gave in one year. That would make Destee a millionare. Now that is a nice thought. Destee as you hob-nob around with the stars.. introduce me to Chaka Khan..

    Destee should get some sponsors. The black magazines would sell. I buy Jet. The ladies read Essence. So bring all the black publications on board. Make some money. Destee you don't need our permission and it is considerate to think of us... I'll be here either way as long as the site comes up. Water thy venture don't let the locust eat it dry.

    Well I say this
    If you cant afford to keep the forum going then this is not the forum for you
    Not you in particular this is to anyone
    I feel like if this the case why should anyone pay then
    Whats the point of paying if no one else will
    And if I was to take this attitude then we would never grow
    If everyone had this attitude we would never grow
    As far as post
    I see people reply to post yes they do
    I see over a 1000 members I see that that too
    So tell me this!!!
    Why do we send certain people love and not others?
    Why do we have to reply to our messages 50 times so every1 can see it to get love?
    Why since we appreciate our people so much Destee and 61 other people the only ones paying to support this forum??

    If she didnt have the little support from us what support would she have???
    How would you feel to have this 100,000 member congratulations and only 62 are payingn members??

    Thats crap no matter how I look at it!!
    Oh yes i get to suscribe to another magazine great!
    Thats not for me-This is just my opinion
    Im one person
    So I guess this is what its all about now!!!

    Check this
    Is productive posting alot of poems
    Is productive chatting in the chat rooms
    Is productive worrying about what you can and cant give no
    But if you can give 10 why not a dollar
    If not a dollar see if you can support in other ways
    Everyone has bills-Yet everyone has internet too
    So what i never understand is
    If there are so many bills internet is a luxury not a need
    So why do we have??
    We can support this if we want
    We can show our love and respect for Destee in more ways than post
    So if you have it give it
    If not ill let Destee handle that
    She knos what I mean!!!
