The Nugent site has recently started charging new members twenty bucks a year for the privilege of posting there (old members get a one year free grace period). I know bandwidth is not free, and boards cost to operate. But would you pay twenty bucks a year to post on a message board (as opposed to voluntarily donating to a board you like)? I see this as a way for a board to atrophy and die, because it'll get no new members at all, and the old ones will slowly go away. What do you think?
