@Dhakablues - Sorry if I came on sounding too strong. It's not a bad idea per se, and I didn't for a moment think that forum privileges would be tied to patron donations. It's just that our primate streak tends to encourage braggadocio, class consciousness, and hierarchies with even the subtlest of cues, and I'd rather BC not fall victim to it (For what it's worth, and without mentioning names, I've seen it happen in a a smattering of other forums, both virtual and real, and in all cases starting with the best of intentions).
