ISTR the odd interesting note in it, and it doesn't typically get enough traffic to irritate me.

or have more money than sense...
how many years worth of subs was the life membership worth?

7.5 years.

$150 versus $19.95 per year on automatic payment.

6 and a bit years if you would be donating to the EFF, CC et al, anyway...
I did wonder about a permanent account awhile back when I got one, but 2 years later LJ is still sucking my spare time away, so I expect I'll still be here in the distant future.

But bear in mind you do get a couple of extras compared to paid users, although you might not be using them.

If you use the extra userpics ($10) and storage space ($24) that takes the total to $53.99 per year. Or just under 3 years.

The storage space is admittedly less of an issue, I'm still only just over 1GB at the moment anyway.

if I'm still using this in another 5 years, then I'll agree its worth it ;)

The weird thing about money is that different things are worth different amounts to different people.

To put it another way, it's 8 months or so of World of Warcraft subs. Now that seems like a far worse deal to me.

I've been on LJ for over 6 years, and don't see myself quitting. It saves me money in the long term, and more importantly hassle. I won't say it's easy for me to pay so much and it wasn't an easy decision. But for me, it seems worth it.

Oh, and it really doesn't make me any cooler than I was.

You were already cool enough :)
But yes, I suppose it isn't a lot compared to WoW, but I get a lot more fun out of WoW than I do LJ now...

It's the Livejournal way. Mindlessly copy your friends!
