Google+ is growing via user invites, why doesn't metafilter do something similar?

I know a lot of the mefi users paid $5 dollars for an account. But why not let users invite 1 friend to the website for free? This would grow the user base of metafilter, and more than likely find quality people to join the site.
It is my understanding that the $5 dollar fee was to stop spammers and trollers.
Which would in theory hopefully bring more quality content to the front page.
