Don't recall this group and I'm non-premium. Maybe grandfathered in before they did this?
Or is this just some parody of some of the kind of stuff they do when we're not expecting it?
Regardless my attitude is more or less meh either way, and the only way I'd see myself going premium is if I got enough DA points in my donation pool. (And currently I'm far from the amount needed. I'm just not the type to win any popularity contests.)
