Well, yes. That's why it's called the "members area". There's a bunch of

Perhaps if they weren't so exclusive.... </rant>
It being slightly exclusive keeps the idiots out, and reduces the "I cannot send
mail to your domain blah blah" to a negligible level. It's only about $3k / year to be
a corporate member, so it's not that high a bar to any company that actually
cares about email.
If you want a forum solely about email operations that's open to any idiot with
a mail client, you risk attracting all sorts of nutjobs on all sides of the spam / filtering
issue. If you limit it to operators, you'll attract the subset of those nutjobs who also
claim to be operators. You'll certainly attract a lot of write-only traffic of the "I cannot
send mail to..." mentioned above too.
