But will you get free *posting* access? From their T&Cs:"Posting
ability is a privilege, not a right. Newsdemon does not immediately
grant posting privelages to new members. You must apply for posting access."
So if you simply access through the free account would this privilege
(or privelage!) be granted?
When lead to water some of us check the water quality.
