Comments:Jonny_C: Well it looks like I'll be reading the several articles a week that I've gone to the Globe for somewhere else.
Zipperfish: I wish them good luck with it. As much as getting free news appeals to me, it's not a sustainable business model. You can't continue to give away a quality product for free. This is simply the way things have to move.
Another successful model is the free print dailies they have the moajor cities now--Metro and such. Designed for people who want to be updated on the fly.
BeaverFever: I can only speak as a reader - I didn't like it before (not that long ago) when the Globe was one of the few papers you could barely read online without a subscription. Now they're going back to that model and it's unfortunate. I would probably tolerate more annoying animated advertising to continue reading, but I don't see why I would pay to read the Globe online when there are so many other options.
Regina: Have to admit I won't be paying for the online service either. Hardly worth while when there are so many other credible news sources out there. When I post news here I usually use them because they link better than others like the NP, but that will be changing. They have a ton of ads you need to watch before you see the story already and I think that's the route they should have expanded. I looked a few pages of comments on the GM site and all that I read said "Goodbye."
RUEZ: I go to the Globe and Mail a lot, but I won't pay for it. There's always going to be free news sites that will be just as good.
