I agree, sounds like a good idea to me :)

Although I doubt I could be of much help among such
skilled people as are on this list, I'd also be
willing to do what I could to help, if anyone desires
my assistance :) (an ExI ID *would* be nice
compensation, but I'd still be glad to help without
that 'reward')

Yeah, and I must say, I like it that way (not being
limited to paid ExI members)... although I do have
something of a biased opinion myself, since I am very
unfortunately not able currently to *be* a 'paid ExI
member', due to my current 'situation' (nearly
powerless IRL, not to mention nearly broke, teenager
in a conservative small town with conservative
parents). I would be a 'paid ExI member' if I could,
but I can't. As soon as I *am* able to, I certainly
will be, but (in my, as previously mentioned, somewhat
biased opinion) I don't think it would be fair to
exclude myself and other transhumanists/Extropians who
are, for some reason or another, not currently 'paid
ExI members'.

As I mentioned above, some of us (or at least a few)
do indeed have such 'strange reasons' as you speak of.
Not all of us, unfortunately, would be able to meet
that requirement.
