Most of the subscribers are single individuals. Why bother sending them a invitaton when 99.9% are rejected because

and/or a cr3w.
Bonan the bavarian

This is a true word.
I gave up CTF, Cups and similar because nobody cares for the small "hacker"...
They always reject the New-Ones, ones that haven't had 20 0-days on his account or a shiny company name and is alone 
out in the wild.

I think its getting ridiculous, if you don't have a name in the industry you're getting sued for the vast majority of 
bugs you solve...
And on the other hand, those same companies give away 3-15.000 for a single bug if the researcher happens to be known :|

Now I don't intent to start a shitstorm or a war here...

Kind regards from the U-Bahn,
