ACM Membership Certificate

I received a certificate from the ACM today.

“This is to certify that, having fulfilled the requirements for professional membership,” I am admitted into the Association for Computing Machinery.

Why yes, I really did pay that membership fee. Which is the only requirement, as far as I know. And then I’m told to proudly display the certificate.

Now I have a useless membership card (I can just write down my membership number) and a silly membership certificate.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the SIGs, the magazines, and the Digital Library, although digital papers should really be free. I don’t need these membership documents.
