Subject: RE: Help: Paltalk Concerts
I suppose that we have been lucky to get away with free connections so far, and that the question of making money from PalTalk other than through advertising had to arise.

After all, none of their banners excite me enough to click on them. I don't go to the snug or the concert room to be sold insurance, perfume, porn or whatever - I go for the craic and the company.

I, for one, would be open to a sensible subscription if it enabled PalTalk to continue and not disappear like so many .COM ideas, and which could even make a contribution to Mudcat funds in the process. After all, if I go out to a singaround, it costs me in petrol, entry, raffle tickets, beer, etc. In PalTalk, I hear songs from NZ, Alaska and all points east, often from people at least as talented as those one pays good money to hear elsewhere. OK it's not the same as a live gig where you are actually physically present, but it gets damned close on occasion!

What say you?
