You want folks to cater to your 'rare' visits???? I dunno, the whole post just kinda rubbed me the wrong way. I pay my fees and am thrilled for what I get. And if I didn't pay my fees, I certainly wouldn't gripe about what I could no longer see.

What Jaime said. I went unpaid for about 6 months before I coughed up the $18. Which is a bargain considering all you have access to here. Easy to browse forums, you can get all the latest info as soon as someone knows it, they will post it here. And heck, if you post your wish lists, someone may contact you that they have your "grail" for sale. It's happened to me!
