Paywall can cause quite a bit of distress in some individuals. I try and downvote everyone I run across, but someone here keeps greenlighing them. I can only hope they get the help they need.

I wish paywalled sites would do something, like shut their paywall down for paying members of news aggregator sites. A Fark account should be like a bus pass to the information highway.

I can summarize the article for you.

2020 sucks. Mom is depressed. Grown kid that doesn't get along with Mom moves back home. Mom is more depressed. What do?
Answer - therapy.

My Answer - move out which will remove some stress from your mother that you don't get along with.  If I lived with a hostile combatant, I'd cry everyday too. Its a way to remove the stress of wanting to throttle your own child.

Atlantic's paywall is completely defeated by using an incognito window.  This doesn't work on a lot of websites any more, but it still does for them.
