    say that you are a high wage earner from the UK that earns equivalent to £25,000/day, and say you work 200 days/year, which means you earn £500,000/year. But now you want to subscribe to RHP, however RHP requires ONLY £15/year, which means you have to scrabble about for loose change which costs you more in lost time than it does to subscribe. So Russ, how would you deal with this kind of problem that many of us high wage upper class chess enthusiats have?

    Do you think you can increase the fee?

    Hate to point this out, but 25,000 x200 is 5 million, not £500,000.

    Each user costs the site around the same, and too complicated to ask for 'earnings', so can't see them changing the current system.

    He was just doing a copy cat version of this: What if you are a low wage worker from Africa...Knowing him, probably making fun.

    oh don't worry, since british economy is collapsing due to immigration from africa and middle east, your job could be taken away by one of them.

    In that case they will have no problem paying the subscription fee
