I've noticed that Whiskey Media staff members have the gold donater medal attached to their profile pics. Does that mean that all staff take a $50/year pay cut or is the medal part of the job package?

Does this really matter?

I, like most of us I believe, paid for our memberships just like everyone else. Same process, same t-shirt, and same coupon. Does seem weird to have a Whiskey t-shirt mailed to the office... but whatever, I support Whiskey Media!

I'm still hoping that one day I will be able to buy a month subscription with PayPal. ONE OF THESE DAYS!(If not I'll have to just try and get the yearly when I have money. Can't right now, too many games coming out.)

I bet Vinny's the only one who got suckered into paying for his membership.

@Vinny: so you support whiskey media who in turn supports you so that you can support whiskey media to support you..... is this like some perpetual money making machine you have created vVnny?

He wasn't being a dick. It was a pretty subtle joke, I didn't get it until you said it was one.

That is some second or third level Trolling if it is true.
