I can't stand by any longer saying nothing, although I've been standing on the sidelines biting my tongue for quite a while now.
Day after day, chursy fires his questions at us and day after day he gets patient and considered answers from Mark, Red, et al
It's been suggested to him that he could access even more information if he subscribed, but he's made it clear he doesn't want to.
The cost is £25 - £12.50 of which goes to an animal welfare organisation (Gozo SPCA).
Our members are happy with the service we provide, many give us unsolicited testimonials - as Red just did. Some members even pay more than is necessary with a note to thank us for all the help they've received.
Believe me, I won't lose sleep if I don't get my £12.50 share of your subs fee. But you are presenting yourself as a real taker and not a person who wants to make friends, contribute, or give anything to our community. It seems as though all you want to do is treat us like puppets - all dangling there ready, waiting, and willing to answer your many questions.
If you can't afford a few quid to show your appreciation for all the help you've received, then you can't afford to move to another country. Maybe you should just forget it.
We're not greedy people but we all put a lot of hours every day into this, especially Mark - and he gives all his share to Gozo SPCA. And then you come along, after having received so much good advice, and accuse us of touting for 25 quid.
I hope you don't pay because I'm not sure I want you around. However, it's Mark who runs the Malta forum these days so I'll back out now and say no more on this issue.
