I just received a very disturbing email from another SD website, which yet again cements my opinion that SA is the best site for this.
This site has different types of membership. The top tier allows you to send and receive emails from anyone on the site, regardless of their membership. The middle one lets you send messages, but you can’t receive messages from anyone who is not also part of either level 1 or level 2 membership (i.e. a paid membership) and the bottom one is free, for both babies or daddies, but you can only reply to messages from people belonging to the top tier membership. I signed up for the free one, because quite frankly I was not impressed with the site and signed up for the hell of it.
Every once in a while, I will get an email from the subscription department urging me to sign up for a paid account (which is to be expected from any company and is fine), but today I got this:
Excerpt from email received: “What does it say to a man who looks at your profile and sees that you won’t even spend the tiny amount of $20 per month on a membership so that you’ll be able to communicate with him? Why should he send you a message that you can’t read or reply to?”
Um hello, isn’t that a little backwards? As the SB in this situation, what I am willing to pay for, should have no relevance. Second, If he (the potential SD who supposedly has enough disposable income to be able to pay for things in my life) should be the one to pay the extra money so he can communicate with ALL babies, not just ones who pay for the site.
So once again, Seeking Arrangement, thank you for being such a fabulous site, and understanding that the sugar baby should never pay unless she wants to.
P.S. blog gods, if this somehow violates blog policies, by mentioning another site, I understand if this needs to be deleted or moderated.
