I don't think you're properly understanding the value proposition here. It may not be cheap but once you've purchased it a whole other world of entertainment content opens up for you to purchase.

Sometimes you have a spend a little money up front before you can even have the opportunity to spend money in other ways.

Yeah, I'm sure it works fine for some, probably many (maybe most), but it's still a lot of stuff to be displaying on a single page by default. That's all.

What ever you do don't look at Jeff's achievements. No, really.

This may or may not be a bug depending on your point of view, but there is such a thing as too much stuff to try to display on a single page. Maybe there should be a default of some number (100 maybe) with a "show more" link at the bottom.

Something to think about.
