Slowdown on my posts

Being as neutral as possible, I just wanted to note that I might not be posting to this website as often as I might.  Not because I’m objecting to what the StarAdvertiser has done.  Just that … well… posting a link to a story behind a paywall just doesn’t work very well.

Anyway, this is one source on the story:

Star-Advertiser Wants Oahu Residents to Pay More than Mainlanders

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser is going to charge online customers differently based on where they live.

The paper doesn’t provide a rate sheet for its new pay wall. And you wouldn’t know it from the four-page pullout section in Monday’s paper introducing what the paper calls, "The Next Generation of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser."

In order to get a price for online access, you have to enter your ZIP code.

When you do, you discover that a banker in New York, an oil baron in Houston or a newspaper executive in Seattle is going to pay much, much less than somebody living on Oahu.

The price on Oahu for a digital only subscription is $9.95 per month. The price on the neighbor islands is $4.95 per month. The price on the mainland, $1.95 — one-fifth what somebody in Honolulu will have to pay.
