Is the OD that desperate that they think people are going to pay $.99 a month to view any of their articles?

As far as I'm concerned, I have no intentions of paying them a dime to view their distorted view of how they report the "news".

There are plenty of other sites one can go to to view the "news" of the happenings in Utica!

It's got to be a death knell. Who's going to pay that. It will only kill their page views and their online advertising. Plus, I've yet to come across a pay wall on their mobile site.

There isn't any "x" to block it out - at least I couldn't find one.

You still can use uticaod.com . What they are talking about is the e-edition. They have been charging for this all along. It actually looks like the newspaper with the full page showing and you can go page by page just like you do when you are reading the paper version. I'm not saying I am getting it, but as the above poster stated, it is much cheaper than the paper version.

The previous incarnation of the OD's paywall could be hacked by simply running AdBlock and Firefox in private browsing mode.

Since they're certainly not able to afford a custom solution it's pretty much a given that they'll be using an off the shelf package. That means dodging it is a matter of determining the circumvention method. And there's always a way to do it.

Some quick Googling showed that the OD is still using the Press+ package. AdBlock and Private Browsing should still be effective, but it may be necessary to tweak your cookie settings or install a Java-killer.

It should be an interesting project for those so inclined.
