I pay for a digital subscription to the Times because, for all her faults and continued employment of Dowd, Brooks, and Friedman, it is still my go to source for news. But for the last two weeks, whenever I go to the Times website, I have a full page ad I have to close, and then, once I do that, I get the NY Times front page and see I am logged in, but another ad covers half the god damned page until I click it. And if I click the minute “x” in the wrong place, I get yet another pop-up ad.
Why would anyone treat paying subscribers this way? Jack my monthly charge up a couple dollars and stop fucking with me, you morons. Hey- thanks for the subscription. We’re going to treat you shittier than everyone else who doesn’t pay to read us (and I say that because I never get the pop-up ads on public computers in which I am not logged in as a member).
Baffling. Is Judith Miller still working there in the subscriptions department?
