To be perfectly honest, I wasn't confident paywalls would work.

I've probably spent close to that on New York TImes Sunday Crossword Puzzle Collections.

I'll admit to paying for the crosswords, but when I want to read about Trump voters who live in flyover states, I do that in private windows.

I want unfettered access to quality reporting and I don't want to deal with clearing cookies or Incognito mode.  I happily pay the monthly subscription for The NY Times.  It's worth it to me.

Lotta "Total Fark" stickers in here already - if people will pay for THIS, they'll pay for the NY Times.

The reason I thought it was different is because people would share articles but sharing forum discussions is much more difficult. Forums are interactive, articles generally aren't. But I take your point.

Sports teams are the vanity purchase.
Billionaires will buy media outlets like newspapers when they want to control and influence opinion.

if that's what is considered a failure, I would very much like to be a failure!

Yes, but in the Trump-cabulary, a word can also mean it's opposite, kind of like when you do a GIS for 'straight handjob'. Conservative math, it's complicated.

I pay for two papers- the New York Times and the Detroit Free Press. The New York Times covers national and world news very well, and then the Free Press covers regional and local very well, with a different perspective on national and world news.
