Has Chartreuse finally gone to far?

Chartreuse Reloaded is finally up. The pdf info sheet linked to on the site states there’s going to be a $9.95 monthly charge for membership, although I take it some of the “cool” kids will probably get a free pass. I wrote last week that their were no rules, and I suppose if anyone could pull this off it would be Char, but past history with sites that charge a membership fee is pretty poor, who doesn’t remember the failures of sites such as Slate and others trying to charge for access. Indeed, if there is one rule, it should be free = good. Now having said that I know of a couple of forums that provide a wealth of information that is worth charging for, but access to a blog? I’ll sit on the fence for now 🙂
