Dear Newspapers with your “ten articles a month and then we’ll shut you off unless you pay us” model:
I have no idea why you think that’s going to work, or why you think I’d give money to you over a dozen different papers all over the world just like you in order to read a random link. You might as well have a hard paywall.
(We /do/ pay for one newspaper access, our local Seattle Times, because, well, it’s local).
They need to band together and make a pool of readers and a single login; this one-off subscription thing is never going to work for them. Maybe this exists?
