As a user of meetup.com - not an organiser - I like the $12/month.

It keeps pretty much all of the casual spammers out. It keeps the quality of meetups high since the organisers have to put a little skin in the game - but no so much skin to prevent even small groups using the service.

I can remember when they didn't charge. The service was worse.
