I'm just lucky I didn't have to pay for those absorbent fees so I could afford the axe. Ya'll just mad that you're going to be living in poverty over these new changes.

I'm clearly being sarcastic. Did the statement about poverty not cue that?

Thank you for being the voice of reason on this issue, Cooke. I hear lots of complaints about fees going up; and if you really think about it, the impact on most actuaries' lives is zero.

Honestly (and I'm probably going to get some virtual tomatoes thrown at me out of this), IMHO, threads like this are a chance for some, what I label as "grumpy old actuaries", to voice their complaints. Which is fine, of course, because that's what I'm doing right now.

And people have labeled me as a grumpy old actuary before, so I can take it. By the way, enjoy your retirement! I heard Canada is a good place to retire. However, I should come visit soon, before they build that Wall up there!

It wasn't clear to me. You should use red font.

Come on guys, you should be like Netflix. Gotta pay for excellence - by providing top-notch compensation, you get a top-notch professional organization that has your back.
