The "fact is" ? Do you have access to the TER membership records?
True many ladies pay for membership. Many do not Many men pay for membership. Many do not I am not going to try to state any facts here about VIP membership because I don't know them, as I am not privvy to TER's information. Although one fact I am sure on, is that you don't even have to be VIP to post on the boards. So while there are paid VIP members and free VIP members, this thread is about board posts, and any basic member is free to post on the boards, so who pays for VIP is kind of a moot point anyway.
BTW, I agree with the rest of your post, and your other posts in this thread.
