OK, I can cut you some slack for that. Us ex-sysops need to stick together. How many times did you have to explain:
1. Why you spent an extra $40 a month for phone service
2. Why people were only allowed to be connected for 30 minutes at a time.
3. And why they weren't allowed to download everything without uploading something.
It got pretty tiring. And then when people accused you of being a "scrooge" and you had to explain to them that you dedicated thousands of dollars in hardware and hundreds of dollars a year plus uncounted hours of your time to make the thing work at all...
