I joined RealJock on September 6, 2007, which I think makes me one of the early members. In those less than two years, RJ has gone from all members being able to view everyone who has viewed their profiles, to viewing only the last two members who have viewed ones profile unless joining (for $60), to not being able to view anyone who has viewed ones profile unless joining. Other features of the site that were also not charged for one now must pay for. My income is modest, and for that and other reasons I try to live modestly. I understand that there are costs of running a site like this, and am happy to contribute, though feel I'm gradually being squeezed out unless I put a $60 charge on my credit card every 12 months, and maybe being a bit manipulated to do so. I think many things distinguish this site from others where gay guys meet. Voluntary financial contributions from members no longer does. What do y'all think about this?
