These links are legit.

The Order of Malta definitely tends to recruit well-heeled types, and while there are no nobiliary requirements for the lower ranks, there definitely are for the higher ones, and these consequently exclude almost all American members. For an interesting proposal for changes to the Order's policies, see here: http://www.chivalricorders.org/orders/smom/m-nbprf5.htm

As far as I know, the proposal has fallen flat, but because such a large percentage of the Order's funds come from American members, the odds are that they're going to have to do something eventually.
