I'm completely fine with the $100 fee, and good for them to donate it Child's Play.

I was surprised by an op-ed I read earlier ("The $100 fee for Steam Greenlight submissions is exclusionary, and wrong"). I enjoy Ben's reviews (moreso when he was with Ars), but I can't agree with him here.

Sure, maybe the fee might still serve its purpose if it was slightly lower (personally I think the $10 number thrown around is too low), but $100 isn't too high. I certainly wouldn't call it 'exclusionary' or 'wrong'. Like I've seen some others say, isn't $100 just a tiny Kickstarter away?

Haha. I guessed that this was from the Penny Arcade Report before clicking. Everything I've seen there has seemed very wrong-headed.
