People who have contributed to the boards over the last few years have been rewarded with a free membership. Thanks! But newbies that may be great contributors were late to the party. They have to spend $29.95 to join the fun.

One of the secondary reasons for charging a fee is to improve the content of the boards. The fee could eliminate spam and doppels. I would suggest that TMF reward newbies that contribute quality content to the community boards by refunding some or all of their membership fee. One suggestion would be to refund fees to one newbie per month that earns a Top 50 Rec-to-Post charm or a Top 50 Favorite Fool charm. This would allow newbies to earn the same privilege that some of us have earned through time.
