I have been trying for months to attempt to get a discussion going on at the Times between the public and management/owners on what I thought was a dumb idea coming down the tubes that compose the Internet.
I am a very very frequent commenter on many Times blogs and opinion pieces, have been for years, and have no intention of paying one cent to supply them with my opinions, humour, and views that they would then use to sell their own product.
Although my comments on this were published, no public debate was undertaken by the NYTimes.
Sulzberger did not respond to my e-mail sent via the Public Editor.
So now I use https://twitter.com/timeswiretap for my access, and if they close the holes supplying that I'll use one of the other tricks out there, and if they close it tightly enough I'm gone.
Bravo to the techies who made themselves $40 million dollars on this without pointing out to the owners the huge holes in the wall they were building to the Times' specifications.
