Not if the cost is too high, no.  I personally do think it is
important to make life easy for new contributors, not because that
will somehow compel them to work for me for free, but because it's a
kind thing to do.

Does that mean that I'm going to start reviewing patches submitted as
virtual pieces of paper in Second Life if that is what is most
convenient for potential new contributors?  No way.  If I felt
compelled to do that, I'd become grouchy, and grouchily spending time
indulging people out of a perverse sense of obligation is not a kind
thing to do.
