Yeah, I'm wondering why this was repeated here on Neatorama?

@Bob.C - Yeah, their web site is a bit confusing to navigate. Perhaps I stumbled across an older price list?

What I don't understand is why anyone would pay an _annual_ fee just to use a font. I can understand a one-time download cost (say, $1 USD or something cheap like that), but an _annual_ fee? And not a cheap one at that!

I'm not dyslexic myself, but as a software engineer, I spend hours every day staring at text (source code). So any font that's easier to read interests me.
