People keep saying this about the $100, as if this was well
established fact, based on some data. Why do people keep asserting
this, I'd like to know what I missed. 

Personally, I'd like a clear idea of the costs involved to run
whatever service I am getting before I would say if $100 was a good
number or not. It may seem small to people with large corporate
budgets, but small non-profit organizations tend to be misers with
good reason. Until I've seen good reason, I am not interested in
spending $100/year.
