I don't understand your pricing program. I see that I have already spent $26. What does that get me? Every time a panel comes up it asks for another $26. When am I going to get something for the money I already spent?

Where do the clicks come from?

This program is a waste of money. We could be doing this for a year and not get anywhere. Good bye mister "expert?".
