Hahaha...what a snobitorium.. Posting privilege's based on what you can afford. hahahaha
Yep - there's a lot of that going about! For at LEAST 50,000 years and probably longer!
Wanna fly to France? Gotta be able to afford a ticket
Wanna fly to France in First Class? Well, those privileges are also based on what you can afford and are gonna cost you more.
Want a new car? "New to you" used car? Yep - gonna be based on what you can afford.... no Ferrari if you can only afford a Yugo.
Out for dinner? You got it - the restaurant you choose will have to be based on ...what you can afford. Steak might cost you a bit more than a burger ...
The computer you use to post on forums like QRZ? The performance is going to be based on what you can afford.... just like your internet speed!
New home? Yep - you guessed it!! The place you choose to live is going to be based on .... what you can afford.
Cable TV/Streaming package? Want that ESPN Sports channel? Uh oh... gonna be based on ... what you can afford.
Most folks learn this stuff as children - that you get to purchase the things you want in life based on "what you can afford"
Why should QRZ be any different? The site owner (and no, that's not me - I can't afford to start a web site like QRZ!!) decided to offer special areas for those "who can afford it" to post in those areas.
But how does that stop YOU from enjoying "those things on QRZ that you can afford"??
Welcome to the world as it's been since, well, forever
There seems to be only two people in that Platinum forum.
Are they sharing the Grey Poupon or fighting over it?
Yep, and I have half of them on Ignore, LOL.
