I would say at the one end are Watson's comments (Watson really tries to tell you everything he knows about a position) and at the other end are Marian's minimalistic and dry comments.

Different Sections Should be Different Prices

I have subscribed on and off over the 20 years this has been here.  Some of the authors here work their butt off.  Some deserve next to nothing.

The best ones here are Watson, Flear, and Palliser, but many of the others are really good.

But two of the sections are not worth $5 a year.  So as not to publically call out names:

These 2 sections have only 6 and 7 games per month, respectively, while most others have 9 to 11 per month.

These 2 sections are always late!  ALWAYS!  In fact, at the time of this post, most sections either have the December update or the January update as their latest.  This makes sense as we are only 11 days into January.  But exactly 2 of them haven't even published December and we are almost half way into January already!  Oh, and these 2 are the 2 that only publish 6 and 7 games respectively per month!

Authors like Flear, who I see is doing 2 sections now, and Watson, who is excellent, deserve a raise, and I would pay $40 a year for their sections each.

These other 2 I call out?  They should be fired!
