Back in the olden days there were paid-user servers and free-user servers, to make sure that paid users got their pages faster.

This was scrapped as being inefficient, but has now been replaced by paid users getting to skip the queue

When requests come in the queues service the paid users first, then the free users.  Most of the time you won't notice, but when the site slows down, it'll slow down a hell of a lot less for the paid users.

Like me!  Hurrah!
