You are aware that there a large number of pools is shutting down a the moment? TradeMyBit, Suchpool and some others. Ever wonder why they have to shut down or why they can't afford to maintain their service beyond 1-2 months if BTC dips? Guess not.
Our pool will be free of "pool fees" at one point but it's to early to release details about that and everything that comes with it. In the meantime there is the pool fee and if someone doesn't want to pay it, that's fine.
