I can't believe you all figured it out.  The SD founders requested that
TMS pull the free-of-charge listings so they could set up this lucrative
business (that would take in $6000/year if 300 people signed up at
$20/year--OK, that's an inside joke for people who have read some of
these other non-SD threads in other fora/lists :).

So, just how many MythTV users do you think there are?  Take that number
and multiply by $60 (at the current rate) or $20 (at the "targeted"
rate).  Now divide that by 5 (for the 5 board members).  Now, even if we
assume that they pocket every cent of the money, do you /still/ think
anyone is getting rich off SD?
