Our records indicate that you, unfortunately, did not earn 10,000 points in October. Because of this, your free Premium Member access has expired, and your account has transitioned back to the previous subscription plan: Free Member"
I have never (EVER) used the resources of ExpertsExchange to ask a question. All I do is donate my time, when I have some, to others, and for free, while EE is earning money from those others.
So while I do not particularly care whether I am a "premium member" or a "free member" I kind of object to this approach.
Such a message, in months when I am busy, or in the case of October where I spent literally dozens of hours helping ONE person solve a problem for a total of 1,000 "points", is about as de-motivating as it gets.
