Roy,
I had the same thought and was about to vote the way you did. Then I
reconsidered because I believe (perhaps incorrectly) that we will NOT get a lot
of subscribers that are not community members. The few non-community folks we
get will hopefully be net contributors to the discussions.   We can always clamp
down if it becomes necessary. Wishful thinking perhaps but there you go.

Bill
