I'm guessing youre a working man, and as you get older you appreciate others work more, I used to pirate games and movies and now I buy blue rays, pay for Netflix and support 2 YouTubers, were growing up : - )I see myself paying for it... I visit this site every single day so why not... And I don't know what it is but something is changing in me lol the other day I subscribed to a Patreon to support a youtuber that I watch everyday it's a small fee to support the content I enjoy so let's go for it...
Here you go, buddy:I've experienced the same. No way am I paying for the "privilege" to view someone's opinion. There are tons of sites like this out there already. Even if they all went to this model, I would find another way to spend my time/money. Many paying citizens have already had their personal data and browsing habits thrown around with no compensation, so hell no.
The subscription is voluntary, so yes that is correct.No payment needed.
I'm betting you think college education should be free because look how well free high school education worked out. I'm old enough to remember when not everyone could afford to get a 'free high school degree' because the family had to eat and boys could work.What if I ad block?
I see no ads while using the website. Not even the ones deemed "acceptable" by somebody.
End of story. No payment needed.
Even if you put your content behind a paywall, I'd switch to other websites.
Ask people over at Forbes how the paywall for adblock users was going for them.
Find a different revenue stream or die - there are plenty of other websites out there.
Well they aren't charging for anything. All their content is still free. They are simply offering an option for readers who want and are able to give a little financial support.I see people have taken issue with the subscription model of this site. I'll admit I'm not crazy about some web sites charging subscriptions for their content, but Techspot has always been straight up when it comes to reporting news, and that's more than can be said of other sites.
Agreed.Well they aren't charging for anything. All their content is still free. They are simply offering an option for readers who want and are able to give a little financial support.
The unhappy folks should just ignore the option and continue reading the site - with ads - as they have been doing all along.
