Changes In Store For COMC.com

Recently, COMC released an announcement on their blog about upcoming changes to their pricing.  It seems to benefit those that cash out their accounts but could hurt the community of "flippers" in their membership population.  I wrote my take on it over on Puck Junk.  Take a few minutes and check it out.  Leave a comment with your thoughts.
