While the OSMF membership fee may seem modest in comparison to other technical organizations, I would look up monthly wages in countries beyond the Europe and North America. 35GBP is not trivial to many.

Good evening Kathleen,
I looked up a definition of a paywall: "A paywall is a system that prevents Internet users from accessing webpage content without a paid subscription." 
An e-mail is as good way of communication. It is still used in many major organizations. The OSMF membership fee is a modest one in comparison with say jQuery Foundation individual membership fee of 400.- USD annually . And it is not a paid subscription to access a commercial content.
I have nothing against a code or guidelines, but I do not see why an organization cannot have a e-mail system. And I would also agree that it could be close to impossible to monitor what people say in social media, especially if they use different human languages or a national social network du jour.
With best regards,
