This does not seem to be an issue at IGN, as all moderators obviously have to already be subscribers at IGN anyway (and that means credit cards are alredy being billed) or actual IGN employees (ie, ZeroSleep) That doesn't sound right... I don't believe that Mods had to PAY and specifically become IGN subscribers in order to become Moderators at TFN. If that were true, no one would become Mods. I mean, who would pay money to get a volunteer job that consumes massive amounts of time with no rewards? Edit - clarifying post.
