Oh sorry, I didn't realize I only had access to the feature because I paid.

Kind of is on the line with what smileyskate said about skatingforums:
Seems like a nice site, but I wonder why you need to be a "member" just to view some of the boards (such as the "on ice") there?
Over here there are some features you pay for (and kiss & cry can only be seen in the on-season if you pay), over there they just want you to be a member.

I'm guessing it offers a veil of privacy, though a very very thin one.
