   Then maybe some users need to *seriously* get over the idea that
   the Internet owes them content :)

When Salon started moving its more interesting stuff to its "Salon
Premium" pages, I asked myself: "Is access to the content of Salon
worth the cost of subscribing?"  About five seconds later, I answered:
"No."  Salon doesn't owe me anything, and I don't owe them anything.
