Why not charge all users?

Why should all the costs be pushed down on the system listers? If there really are 10’s of thousands of users, why not charge a fee to subscribe to the site? Very few people who are serious in finding a good system to trade, would mind to pay $20 per year (less than $2 a month) to register to the site. If you have 10 000 users, that is 200K right there. The ones who are not willing to pay such a small fee per year to find a system is probably just going to waste valuable and costly server resources anyway.

Since both users and system listers get value from this service, I think this is fair that all should share in the costs.
