A lifetime membership on Adland starts with an adgrunt account.
The price of entry is 6 United States Dollars - it's like buying us a fancy coffee, except we use the cold hard cash for server bits & bytes.
You'll be able to posts your own news announcements (we moderate), you can make comments and participate in the community without having to jump through weird captcha hoops. This one-time fee helps defray server costs, as well as keeps trolls and spammers out.
Note, this is subscription that ticks along until you cancel it. Cancelling the donations won't delete your adgrunt account - however, you'll start seeing captchas again.
