It's a dumb barrier. Instead of Valve hiring a handful of people dedicated to keeping Greenlight clear, the put the expense on the indie developers.

Valve makes money of those sales too. Let them pay the price. They're the ones wanting more product to sell.

A bunch of employees who cost money and have to be managed versus a virtual $100 barrier that effectively does the same thing. I don't know, it doesn't seem dumb to me. They aren't scrapping their traditional approval process anyway, publishers and indies can still go through them directly. Greenlight strikes me more as an awareness tool and I can't say I'll be using it much so /shrug.
