There was a lively discussion on Slashdot.org regarding The New York Times' contemplation about charging people $50 a year for the access to its archived news articles. Not many Slashdotters think it's a good idea. Eventually, the managers of that newspaper will listen to their chief accountant, not the ordinary Joe and Jane Click-O-Matics.
Being a fan of The New York Times, I was itching to comment on it, but unfortunately I was assigned to be the moderator on Slashdot this morning, and according to the rules I cannot comment and moderate at the same time. So I took my time reading all the comments on that specific topic, and was impressed by many of the opinions and inputs. On a popular Web forum like Slashdot, the ignorant and the obnoxious are inevitable, but thankfully smart and thoughtful voices do emerge.
