Globe Abandons Relevance

Remember that paper that used to look like The NY Times?  Its gone now, gone from the Internet.

PS.  Has the Times already abandoned its firewall?  I've been visiting Nate Silver three times a day and have been able to get the full-text articles no problem.  Same with Revkin.

I blocked the G&M from my Google news feed back after they endorsed Harper again for the 2011 election. Never see their stuff, don't miss it.

Allow me to draw your attention to the following in if I remember the 3rd last para.

"And readers who find stories through social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook as well as search engines and blogs won’t have those stories count against their monthly cap."

Even more pointless than initially thought.

Yeah, Dana, I read that earlier and didn't get the implication. So this firewall is apparently aimed at total suckers.

If they read their reader comments they know exactly how intelligent their readership is.
