Thanks for starting this thread, and keeping the discussion going, folks. For further clarification:
1) When you pay to become a supporting member, you pay via a Paypal account. No one here at the Ledge will ever see your credit card or banking info. They Ledge owner, Michele, simply receives a payment from Paypal.
2) The cost is $1/per month. This can either be paid in a 6 month installment or a 12 month installment.
3) Unless a buyer steps forward, or the board quickly begins supporting itself with enough paying members, the Ledge is in very real danger of disappearing.
