Thumbs up Why

When I read that someone wants a Thread shut down I ask myself "Why". What makes them uncomfortable as they always have the option of not reading the thread?? Why is someone so insecure they want communication which don't impact them turned off. As the Psychologist standard question is "how does that make you feel" maybe they should ask themselves that question. The Talk of the Village is a terrific forum for sharing and saying to shut something down is a violation of what it stands for.

When you see a product in the market and it says get 1 free if you buy one, do you really think that is free or built into the business case for the product cycle, The charges for some usages at the Squares is just another way of recovering costs or increasing profits. The squares have never been free it is just the what strategy used to recover the costs and/or increase profits. There is an old saying in Pricing Strategy and that is "if you have no competition then greed should drive your price." !! That defines a "free market"!!
The businesses around the square plus a subsidy from a government tourist tax pays the entertainers. Free to the residents.

People are easily fooled when they don't take the time to search out facts.

Can't imagine what golf course maintenance has to do with this topic.

I think the business around Lake Sumter (not sure about the rest) contribute approximately 20-30% and the residents pay the rest even though the benefit are directed to the Business's. I'm sorry some can't understand why the advertised "free executive Courses" includes maintenance? I can say what I believe but can't help everyone to understand it?

As an addendum to the last note. It was in "context" to the subject.

In Brownwood and Sumter Landing the entertainment is paid by the merchants and a grant from Sumter County tourism.

Usually the motive is quite transparent.
