locked Re: Pricing Changes #update


Dear Mark,

It seems as if you have chosen to monetize groups in a fast manner. Your earlier pricing policy was aiming a longer term. Although the new pricing terms do not affect earlier groups, there is a question mark in our minds that maybe all groups will be subject to the new pricing conditions one day. I understand that you should earn money but your attitude seems to have been changed over time and new pricing terms are harsh. I guess, you do not want to acquire new groups and you find the present number of groups and members adequate.

Mark is, of course, free to do what he wants, but by capping free groups at 100 members he is essentially saying "no more free groups".  In most groups that I participate in, only 5-10% of members actively post, so "100 members" really means "5-10 members posting".  And one jiggabyte of storage sounds insane to me.  A 2000 member limit with 50 MB of storage would have made more sense.  But I'm not a techie -- perhaps that is the way modern pricing works: storage is cheap and signaling is expensive... is that right?
