New York Times limits free access even more

The New York Times is changing their free access limit from 20 per month to 10 per month, I think that’s a mistake. I’m a subscriber, so it’s all free to me, but I think that for the paper it is in their best interest to get people used to going to the site on a near daily basis. I think that at 10 views per month, most people who are not subscribers will simply stop going to the site at all. That’s what I’ve done with the Los Angeles Times, which just instituted a 15 view limit. Once I hit that mark, I don’t even bother looking at them any more. I find some of their articles interesting, but I’m not about to start paying $18 a month for the joy of reading an average of an article a day.
