    I had to give it a bit of a try ...

    So, you have x number or technicians/engineers online at a time, ready to answer a question posed for an amount of money. Strangely enough I can't opt for £0.

    I wonder how you get to be one of their engineers? Tempted to join up and then offer the answers for free and point the person over here. Still, everyone has to earn a buck or two I suppose ...

    Does anything think that the Experts Exchange model has now split into Free and Bloomin' Expensive?

    This is how (strangely enough I looked myself before reading this post!)
    JustAnswer - Expert Registration

    I didn't sign up in the end as I wimped out, and also figured I probably wouldn't have the time to earn money!

    It's free to read any of the answers, without being a member nowadays, which I thought kind of defeated the point!?

    Yea, it is. Google the title of either of those 2 problems, then click the link on google, scroll down to the bottom and you'll see the solution.

    It's less depressing then seeing ads for dating sites. I seemed to be stalked by the bloody things.
