I'm really trying not to be sarcastic here.

I'm wondering: Exactly what part of "$15 / 3 months non-recurring" makes
one compute "the reality today is $60/yr"?

Personally, I read the "non-recurring" part to mean... well...

If it had said, "$15 / 3 months recurring" I could see your point, but
instead, you're misreading (or deliberately ignoring) what's listed on
the site.

If you have any questions as to the intent / pricing, please go to
http://www.schedulesdirect.org for official statements.  Otherwise,
misquoting and misstating would be a form of FUD that isn't
constructive.  And we really try to be constructive here... honestly -
we do.  For the most part...
