I am curious here... for other big national boards, like TER and TBD, paid members or VIPs are given discounts with many ladies (myself included)... I know many of you here are paranoid about giving out handles for fear that you may receive preferential treatment (oh, horror!) but that really isn`t a concern on the other boards. I honestly don`t see the problem with giving people preferential treatment, we do it without merb handles too. We do it when we see a regular client over a new one, a new client with many references over one with only one, when we already know the person and can cut straight to the stuff we like, over a person we need to discover.
Personally, I don`t necessarily "like" knowing someones handle, but it does help me screen out the bad apples much more easily... I have considered adding a https://merb.cc discount, but is there a way to see a) how long the person has been a member and b) if the person is a paid member or not?
Thanks for the information
