I have seen a few reports of issues come in to the membership email 
address, but Darin at RefreshMedia has dealt with each of them and I 
think everyone's been looked after so far.

There was some confusion about corporate memberships vs. memberships for 
employees of corporations, which was concluded that the company should 
buy a single membership and then individuals at the company can also 
hold individual memberships. We should probably explain this better on 
the site.
