Agreed. I don't mind a $20 fee in the least, but charging more people
a $10 fee is better (:

I'm lazy. I don't happen to visit the PLUG website. I don't expect I
will any time soon. I read my email regularly. If I receive an
automated message every year saying "click her to pay your dues" or
"here's the details to send money", I'll probably do it. I'm glad
there's some action on tidying up the process.

I've said a variant of this a few times over the years. I think I last
paid my dues in 2007 or so, maybe 2005. I'm really not fussed, but if
you want my cash, prompt me with info I can use (:
