NFT: NYDN just blocked me

section125 : 2/8/2018 8:43 am
to charge me for access. 13 weeks for $0.99...basically $4 per year. Pretty cheap, but I'm not paying to read a couple of sports articles per day.

Maybe because I use an ad blocker? Anybody else get blocked?


Looks like

they are going with the Times/ Newsday model. Pay for access going forward. Going to suck when the Post eventually follows suit.

NYT gives you 10 free articles a month

I expect that will become common. You just have to be selective with what you read.
Been waiting for that to

happen. Nothing in life is free. I'll wait. Few things in NYDN are worth reading.

Just like when cable was going to be commercial free!
I got blocked too

Guess you get a certain number of articles free a month (10?). And the 99 cents for 13 weeks is the trial offer. After the trial it is $1.99 per week.

If you see a headline that interests you, copy and google it.

Someone else will have the almost same story for free. The Journal news has been doing it for a while now. I have never paid and I never will.

$1.99 per year, ok maybe, but $1.99 per week? Nah, I can do without it, thanks.

Incognito? Can't they still see your IP ID#?

Does that work around really work? As for copy+paste, sometimes it takes a little extra for a site to flash the pay now for access screen. Hit a ctrl-a, ctrl-c and paste the article into a word file.
The writers have to get

When will the NYP become pay?

the Times and the Post all day long and never come across the issues that I have with the Daily News. Their web page is horrible. I don't read now when it's free; I'm sure as hell not going to pay for it.

Sage advice and one that I never pondered.

I do contribute to BBI, but good advice for those that done...
I have no use at all for any of the NY area papers

Yep same here

I deleted all three.
I get a better idea of news from BBI...

than from any other news source. BBI is also my go-to source for dating advice and hipness on social trends.

Never found the Daily News to be "must reading" for covering NY sports. Not a fan of Myers on Giants coverage or Lupica.
