You are now limiting the number of mutes to 3, or "start a free trial to Pro". After the free trial is over then what happens? Go Pro @ $75/mo or continue on "Basic" with only 3 mutes available? I am not interested in Pro, so my choices will then be to accept annoying posts ("noise") on StockTalks, or sign off. Of course, if I sign off I will no longer be seeing your ads. Is this really what you want to accomplish?
I am currently spending ~$650/yr on subscriptions on your site, and being able to read articles more than 30 days old is critical to my being able to evaluate either an investment idea or an additional subscription service.
Now if you had the expertise of a dedicated investment news outlet (WSJ, Barron’s, etc.), I can understand that there would be a return on that investment, but most of the articles are not written by an investment professional, let alone an SA staff writer.
If you need additional revenue to maintain and enhance the web site, I would gladly sign up for say $10/mo. Asking for an additional $900/yr for nothing more than retrieving information stored on a disk drive far is beyond reasonable.
I am getting repeated "Press and Hold" warnings to "prove" I'm not a robot. I do not have enabled and will not enable them. Please get rid of this annoyance.

I would like to suggest an "Untrack comments", or "Untrack replies" button for StockTalks, similar to the one already being used for articles. I often receive notifications that I have a new reply to an old thread that I have no interest in following any longer. This makes for an unnecessary annoyance.
I have 5 portfolios. Data from portfolios 1 & 2 show up in the android app but not on the web. Data from portfolio 3 shows up on the web but not in the app. Portfolios 4 & 5 are in correct sync. An odd synchronization bug. Have tried un-installing and re-installing android app, and using different browsers for the web, resetting cookies and cache, all to no avail.
Certain commenters are very prolific and repetitive; responses to any counter argument is either ignored by said commenter or given an almost word-for-word repetition of a previous comment, including unsupported links to charts and other irrelevant data. This particular commenter is so prolific and so annoying that I simply no longer want to see anything from this individual, no matter what they say.
As of today, muting of users is virtually unlimited (you will be able to mute up to 300 people)
Hi, I received an email claiming I signed up for this service - I didn't so I've changed the password and I'd like this account promptly deleted (Don't leave a feedback response saying something was compromised all of my passwords are randomized and different for each site. My email was probably used by a bot creation service.)
So if I remove your account, it will not stop the bot from creating another account with your email if it gets around our bot blocker (which cannot be 100% foolproof). I did a "block" on the account so the user cannot comment or perform other tasks.
I suggest you just leave it dormant. If you decide to delete your account anyway, go here https://feedback.seekingalpha.com/knowledge-bases/2/articles/621-how-do-i-delete-or-close-my-account
