If anyone has been guilty of being pushy about getting people to become supporters, it's been me, not Tony. I'm a firm believer in paying my way, and while I appreciate that there are quite a few people who regularly read and contribute to Tonmo who simply don't have the money to contribute financially, there are lots of others who could afford to but don't. I value Tonmo, and don't think Tony should have to support it financially at all. He is already giving it a massive amount of time and effort, and the benefit to scientists and scholars, as well as budding teuthologists should be obvious. That it has a great deal of value to people like me, who are not scientists, just interested lay persons, is also obvious, because if it didn't have, we wouldn't be here. Bottom line is, if you think Tonmo has any value to you at all, and you can afford $40 a year, then you should pay it. If you can't afford it, and most students probably can't, that's one thing. If you can afford it...(what is it they say on NPR?....it costs about as much a a cup of coffee a day for a month?...)and you're not contributing, then shame on you!
