It would be nice to count my earnings from the MPP in dollars, rather than in cents. Once, or twice it paid for my monthly subscription. Back before the internet, I subscribed to a few paper magazines and the only reward I received for being a loyal subscriber, was an occasional discount on the subscription, so I understand your logic. Still, it would be a pleasant surprise, if I received a few dollars from the MPP, rather than a few cents.
