What really killed Crimespace was the "mandatory donation" policy that came up a few years ago when it was time to renew. That was not cool. He refused to make any allowance for folks like me who had a dying wife, huge medical bills and others, and were on food stamps and trying to get rent assistance. I made it public at the time why I was leaving and I was not alone in being upset by the new policy. I got flooded with emails and comments on FB from other folks who were also leaving because of his "mandatory donation" policy.

So sorry to hear about that Kevin. I guess that happened after I stopped participating, as I was in the "too many social media services" camp and had to cut way back. I agree that any "donation" that is mandatory is not a donatation at all but a membership fee. Perhaps it would have been better to go the ad route; seems to work very well for Facebook!
