    I guess maybe because I've had it free for so long that it's silly. Like, this is a stretch but, you sleep in your bed every night and it's always been free until the government deciders that you must pay for use of your own bed.
    I know I pay for phone services but you can't really have an advert mid-conversation.

    I buy CD's also, I feel that if I wish to pursue a career in the industry I may as well contribute to it, otherwise I'll be out of a job hah.
