Does this mean that those in the future that receive the free memberships will have to report it because the are, when they post often and with good content, able to expect to receive that?

I think not. There's no agreement or guarantee that one will get a comp, so there's no payment in exchange for services. I look at it more as a rebate, and rebates aren't taxable income.
