Whoaa, Nellie: do they really think this will work?
OK, yeah, Slashdot is often interesting, and $5.00 for 1,000 pages isn't exactly outrageous, but then again, do I really care that this lets me see articles 20 minutes earlier than non-subscribers?
Well, no, I don't. Apparently this has been in place for a while, and the first time I ever noticed it (because it refused to show me an article) was today. Obviously immediacy isn't normally an issue for me, and I suspect it isn't for too many others, either.
So how about you? Have you been refused a Slashdot article yet? Do you read Slashdot religiously, regularly, sometimes? Would you cough up $5.00 for this "early reader" privilege?
Got something to add? Send me email.
