I've been a paid member of MetaFilter since 2005 (really, that just means I paid $5 once, just like the other few hundred thousand registered members), and it's been one of my major sources for news and information for even longer. That's why it's a particular honor to have my work, China Punk, linked in a front page post on the site in a broader post about the punk music scene in China. Thanks to dubusadus for the link.
