When my drawing hand deserted me it was “ I could fall into a bucket of t*ts and come out sucking my thumb”.
Following on from Del Boys “ He who dares Rodney” was “Faint heart never a fair maiden won”.
Then, “If brains were made of dynamite you wouldn’t have enough to blow your hat/wig off”
I have been on MDs since December 2001 and I would hate to work out how much of his own money Dave has put into this site. For the first years there was no advertising and no subscription so it was Dave on his own who paid all the server fees.
Even with site supporters Dave has still invested a lot of his time and money into this site. A price of £10 a year is equivalent to one takeaway meal or 2 to 3 pints of beer. The information it is possible to glean from this site is worth a lot more than what anglers used to spend on the angling magazines which appeared weekly/monthly over the year which a lot of anglers were prepared to pay for.
Stop moaning there is no other fishing site as good as this one,,
and you get far more than just fishing, club house is a wealth of knowledge no one else wants know to cost of running
this site its a tenner for ffs ,what we do know, is without the supporters donations this site might not be running
No it doesn't make anyone entitled ,
It helps to keep this site going ,
As Geoff stated Dave has invested a lot of time and money into this ,
I think you are the only one who has questioned the cost to run it .
It's not compulsory to become a site supporter ,but it helps .
Alan Scothorne catching gudgeon when he was a nipper fishing with Barnsley juniors ……. Turned to our tutor Eric Jacques and said ….. “ these are the biggest smallest fish I’ve ever caught “. Not a saying as such but, made us all laugh at the time.
