I have owned sites since 1997 and I can tell you I pay 12 bucks a month and a good site doesn't require much of anything... most require nothing. Including forums.
I am getting tired of this whole debate [so I am adding to it...cough] and grow weary of the interwebz sympathy driven money train. This isn't rocket science (I do that too).

Personally, I don't care how much the site is worth, how much it costs to operate or any other behind the scenes issues.
My two cents....
There is a site called ATS that is visit. I think it's a fine site and I wish the curators well. As it stands now, I like it the way it is.
If it turns into a pay site (or introduces some pay options), people will either pay or they won't. If the product has value to each individual consumer, those consumers will pay. If not, then they won't.
I'm not sure what the controversy (for lack of a better word) is all about.
