    I paid for a subscription as an insider yet I still have all these ads to deal with. I thought it would be ad free since the cost of being an insider is huge.

    I agree. I too am a subscriber to Threads Insider, and the emails I receive still petition me to join-somehow I have to navigate around them and get to the article I am interested in. It's a little overwhelming and not convenient at all. Frustrating.

    I truly dont know if I am this# or not. I thought I joined. Insider charged me the fee, but every time I tap login I am asked to join again. Customer Service time. My GM wd callthis too much sugar for a dime.
