only in utica do they think the locals dont have a brain....when the news got booted to binghampton and its days late on fresh news so we figured read it online cause the price of the thin paper just isnt worth it. well i guess i dont need to view the online either. in the end the people will prevail ...good bye observer dispatch...dont need you...dont want ya...

I get the paper and look at the news on line. They have blocked the online viewing so now I'm cancelling my paper as well. I think this was a very foolish thing to do to make money.

I wonder how many folks actuallycomplained to the OD directy regarding the charge to view their website? Better yet, how many more newspaper subscription cancellations the OD got hit with so far.

Another curiousity - how many facebook users 'dislike' their facebook page? I'm curious to hear how many 'dislikes' are posted on their facebook page.

Another rocket scientist at the helm making all of the important decisions! lol! I guess nobody thought of tracking their daily traffic and using that to score some advertising revenue? They would have had better luck doing that instead of charging people for the rehashed news from major news sites and WKTV. Say goodbye to the OD, both print and online very soon.

You all realize that all news sites will soon cost money I hope, a lot already do. If you can't afford the $8 month that I think I read the Od is asking, it really shows how bad this area is for jobs. Move!!! Duh

Have they started limiting number of stories available? Does it also effect the mobile version of the site? Haven't noticed anything different yet - about the same number of poorly written stories.

They give you 30 days til they block you. I sent an email to Donovan and she answered me and basically said who cares, it is what it is.

Well they might as well just close shop, nobody is buying their paper anymore, and nobody will pay to see the news online either! Let them close, its a dogshitt operation anyway.
so many more

WKTV.com has all the same news and all the same advertisers...for free......who cares about the MV dining card or the other hopeless ploys the OD comes up with to get readers......to pay for their lame old same old news stories.....instead of free coupons from local businesses....how about some free news from our local newspaper...quit double dipping by making the advertisers pay...and subscribers...
I have never seen a daily free coupon worth redeeming. Coupon for one free gold fish. Coupon to have your canary's teeth cleaned. Coupon for a free push-up at the fitness club. Coupon for a glass of water at some dirty spoon that is 72 miles out of town. Who comes up with this stuff?
