filtered for purity?

Kudos to Matt Haughey for (finally!) implementing a nominal charge for new MetaFilter memberships….

Due to the bursting size of the community, its use of resources, and the cost of running the servers, all new users have a one-time $5 charge, to help defray these costs. Keep in mind this is a donation towards the server, and not a purchase. If you sign up an account to pimp your product, act like an ass, or generally just do things that break the guidelines you will be booted and there will be no refunded donations.

I’m sure the irony-challenged are happy that Haughey didn’t implement all the ideas in my MetaFilter Proposal from October 2001.
