Guess they decided that since BofA dropped the five buck debit card fee we can afford to pay it to E-Signal. As a long-term subscriber adept at decoding E-Signal missives, here is my translation of the e-mail: "We have not improved our service. In fact, it has deteriorated. But we think you're such passive stooges that we can suck an extra sixty bucks a year out of you without a whimper. In fact, you should thank us for letting you give us more money to fix our new software abortion. After all, we conned you into alpha testing our it on your own time. And we don't give a shit how long you have been a subscriber. Loyalty works only one way to us. You loyally subscibe and we loyally take your money. You have ten years of code development invested in our platform? Sucker!" I have to make myself say it: "Nnnnnn....nnnnnn....niiiiii.....niiiiiin.....niiiiinj.....niiiinja." There! I said it! Guess they didn't do a competition analysis before jacking off their prices.
