Yes it will probably cause people to devalue the site. If you pay a dollar it will tend to "feel like" the entire endeavour is worth a dollar.

I was talking about paying people to contribute. Not having people pay for membership.

Metafilter has continued to be a pretty good site even though it requires a small fee to join. There's also a requirement to post a few comments (you can comment for free but need to be a member to do top level posts) and wait a week after sending in money. And it's actively moderated.
