EDIT: I was not impressed with this podcast.
The debetable thing was amusing.

But ultimately, I am fine with that. None of the suggested limitations really convinced me. If Cryptic doesn't think they need a ton of subscribers, maybe they _really_ don't?

If you're on a 15 $ a month subscription right now, and think it's not worth it, just become a F2P player.
But I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people don't realize what all these inventory slots, bridge officer slots and the like actually mean to them, until they lose it and end up buying them anyway.
But the good thing is - the new F2P players most certainly won't miss them, since they don't know them. And no one can wave them into their face like the Freeforms in Champions Online.:p

If the money will come from the F2P players buying stuff on the C-Store anyway, it doesn't matter if the subscription package is interesting or not. The only people that would care about it are lifers. But they can't unsubscribe anyway, and so they will be "forced" to live with all the irrelevant subscription advantages.

Why didn't you guys pin him down on why he thinks it would be funny to lose the extra income a subscription would provide?

Any current subscriber that chooses to drop to silver tier will KEEP all of their inventory, bank, ship, character slots. Anything you have on your current account will NOT be removed. So, they won't really be missing anything except the "privilege" of making content for Cryptic through the foundry... oh, and the $15 fee.
