If I saw 500 Subscribers that were willing to spend $50.00
on The APUG Photo Book, maybe I would accept that reason.
I was considering the possibility of " A 15 year old Member from
Brooklyn, that thinks her photograph would be worthy of the APUG Book "

It's A Global Community, We Need To Realize That Some Members
Cannot Afford To Become Subscribers, Maybe It's A Challenge Just
To Get Occasional Access To APUG And Learn A Little About Photography.

Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few
