I doubt that someone with internet and electronics knowledge doesn't know what PayPal is, really, PayPal is mostly universal. Perhaps we should start with what you refer to as "third world" country. My country could be considered a third world country by some (Mexico), which BTW is the 15th largest economy in the world just below Australia so I actually think of it more like 2nd world but whatever, my point is that Somalia can also fit the "third world" category and to me there is a big difference. Furthermore, how many active, participating members have you seen around here from countries that poor? Of course, not everyone has their location under their nickname, but still....
Anyone can read the threads in this forum, its only if they want to participate that they have to donate $1. That seems quite fair to me.

Count me in! I think that is a great idea and I would gladly pay the $10 annual membership. Perhaps very experienced members like PRR (MIA), CJ, obviously the admins JR, abbey and others, don't have to pay, but the rest have to.
