This question How can I cover costs without enraging the community? doesn't seem to me to be about site moderation. This seems to be more of a business model question. Is this on-topic here?
Note, I did try to check the What types of questions can I ask here? section in the help, but it's pretty sparse for the time being, and doesn't really give much guidance.
I don't have a bias either way, I'm just asking to clarify the intent of the moderators.se site. It seemed off-topic to me, but it does fall within the scope of building, administering, managing and cultivating digital communities, so I'm asking for discussion/consensus.
