I may disagree with every word this person has typed, but I will defend, to the death if necessary, his/her/it's right to say it.

Are you sure that [nine nine nine nine nine nine is] random?
That's the problem with randomness. You can never be sure.
"With that in mind, we have invested heavily in strengthening the value we provide to our members."
"Strengthening the value." I like that. Sounds ... well, strong. Sounds supportive. So, what has (ISC)2 done for us recently?
Well, they killed the CISSPforum. It had been going for more than 20 years, and was a semi-valuable resource in terms of collective wisdom, but they killed it. They gave us this censored, redacted, and managed social media "community" platform instead, but they killed the forum.
However, we resurrected it. I'd like to invite you all to join it.
You can join for a low, one-time fee of $0. That's also C$0, and A$0, and 0 pounds, come to that. We accept Bitcoin. (We make fun of it, but we accept it.)
There is also an annual maintenance fee of $0. This will increase at a rate of not more than 0% per decade.
Tell your friends ...
(Seriously. The two previous messages I have posted on this topic tonight have both been censored, so you need to pass this info around.)

This is obviously some new meaning for the word "modest" of which I was
previously unaware ...
I'm not sorry to say I think it's a low blow.
Want to charge one fee but more for people with multiple certifications, fine.
But leave the fee as it is, which is already high, for those with a single certification.
I have to cover all costs out of pocket, and the return I get is already describable as "meh", so it will become more so if I have to pay 125$'s with the same meh return.
