Um -- the Hints are included - probably even if you haven't paid for Pro -- it is following up on the Hints that is not included.
I am still coasting on their "gift" of five year MyHeritage DataBase subscription as consolation for changing my Lifetime Pro Membership into a five-year Pro Membership -- not looking forward to when it runs out and I have to decide whether to renew Pro - as things stand now, definitely will not be renewing the DataBase Subscription.
And yes, I have seen other folks also mentioning being upset about it.
Of course you're right - I mis-stated what I meant about the hints. I have a subscription to Ancestry so I can get the citations as well as other family trees. I subscribed to Geni so our family could all enter information. I don't know if My Heritage is a good deal or not but I think I just feel a little hi-jacked when I go there and can't go further without paying. Maybe it is just me!
I know I have seen many similar comments - but generally from a while ago, because that was when folks first started discovering it.
Think some of these contain examples of other folks also upset (but not taking the time to read thru carefully - so if these do not have any such complaints, my apologies):
