Because they don't represent much better value for the money. You get much better value for your money at a site such as Pokerstars because they provide much better security, much better customer service, many more chances to win money from freerolls, a much more secure underlying software platform.
Paying no money for a service does not qualify for better value in anyones dictionary, it only provides less expense for people who try to get something for nothing.
If you want to pay nothing for a great service, I want to hear about how you go to work 40 hours a week and take ZERO pay. I also want to hear how you order a taxi, and pay nothing for the ride, or send a package FedEx without paying the fee, or go bowling and not pay for the games, etc.
More people need to quit griping about paying for great sites that offer poker like Pokerstars, and appreciate what they offer for the money
