Jim, I guess some folks like you just like to complain that they are 'victims' of some system or another. Some folks eat half of their meal in a restaurant and then demand that it be sent back because it's bad and they aren't going to pay. Others always blame their plights on conspiracies to defraud the public.
I've been a subscriber to Ancestry for many years. I have always been notified in advance before renewal and know exactly what it will cost me before I re-up, so there's no surprise on my credit card statement.
I guess I'll never understand the hatred and venom that many posters on this board spew out at MFI/Ancestry. If such folks dislike Ancestry so much, why do they keep coming back to review the boards and post hateful messages?
