If I got an account, and didn't renew it, if I still had the cookies, could I use the account? Is that legal?

Umm...everyone seems to do it...

But why wouldn't you want to renew your account?

It was a retorical question. Or... uh... just... ...Is that the right word?

Thanks :P

Anyway, aftershock, if it is illegal, why aren't you banning people who do it?

I don't know, I don't really see a need for it unless they are abusing that or spamming. If it really becomes a concern, I suppose unixmad or galen can always clear the cookies so you have to log back in again.

<?
$accountTimeLeft = ???;
$sessionName = ???;
if ($accountTimeLeft<=0) {
session_start();
unset($_SESSION[$sessionName]);
}
?>
Not hard....

I still want to post after my account runs out and seeing as how I payed for 3 accounts so far and I will be paying for more I wish that if people that bought over 2 or maybe 3 accounts should get free posting access for maybe 3 months or more or however long they upgraded for or something.
