    Of course, is it really so shocking that a poorly run newspaper has a poorly run pay wall?

    So the clearing cookies trick isn't working anymore...I guess they really really mean it now. Oh we'll, I'm not spending a dime on them. Plenty of other sources to get news nowadays.

    Funny that papers don't hire real online media marketers to run their online operations and let them format their news into their web design. They'd make a killing since they have the readers, the content, and the advertisers. They either use in staff designers who don't understand the online marketing business or else they override a real marketer's decisions trying to be an online newspaper that simply mimics a print paper as much as possible. The print news business seems to be run by dinosaurs that can't or won't adapt. Print should be used to generate more readers for the online version today not vice versa. Few of them understand that. My ex father-in-law is an old newspaper man. He says many of them know it but can't get past the ink and paper. It will take a whole new generation that accepts entirely the electronic format and eschews paper as a mere corollary to the "real" thing. But it's coming- a younger generation of manager's sees it but they don't have enough power to override the older bosses yet. This wave of subscription based newspaper models is probably the last gasp. Subscriptions will be for deep archives and research drilling but current news will be free once the current rash of subscriber models fails.
