  • Don’t put stuff on my Facebook feed that I have to pay to see or subscribe to. A waste of my time and isn’t going to happen. Makes me angry.

  • I have just been made aware of your publication thanks to NPR s site where I found an article imported from stat news. I was intrigued and wanted to know more but Immediately hit a roadblock i.e. Subscribe or forget it. Well unfortunately I cannot subscribe because I live on Social Security which Doesnot allow for Extras. I didnot and do not expect to get your publication for free. But to not allow me to get access to at least 2 or 3 articles a month seems penny wise and pound foolish, to paraphrase. I may not have much money but I do have quite a few friends whose interests, like mine, are wide ranging. And ‘word of mouth’ can be a powerful ‘thing’ 🙂. I could go on, but suffice to say, it honestly would be hard to recommend your site on the basis of one good article. So I ask that you reconsider your policy? and be alittle more generous with your writings availability. Thanks for reading this.
