Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

WOW! Thatsabsurd as of right now the forums are open for EVERYBODY.

So what would be the point of a government bill born from your fantasy land of a brain?

I bet you had to think long and hard before you came up with that weak attempt at a jab didn't you?

Oh well try again.

Don't worry Myth a gov bill will force the people to pay for your subscription in the near future so everyone has access to news and forums .....but in your case there is no near future AGW is destroying the world

I read a lot myself. The N&S is kinda sparse on the subject matters I like though. Good luck to you to Ithink.

My parents taught me to respect and like to read and be informed. Even if sometimes it might not be too interesting. We subscribe to the local paper, and buy one daily wherever we travel. I wish you good luck, myth.

You know I wonder what the people like me think of this.

Subscribing isn't an option for me. I just don't read the paper front to back I only read what interests me. The same for this site.

This change that they have done pretty much shuts out a person like me.

Oh well. Only time will tell if this was smart business decision on their part.

What this has done is make this site exclusive for people who already subscribe .

And their prices aren't going to bring in subscribers.

So it was cool while it lasted.

That being said they might as well redesign the website without forums since the usage of these forums is going to drop to near zero.

Where is everyone? I am glad to be a subscriber.

By the way. From what I am hearing this move has ticked off a lot of people.

I'm not sure of the website statistics but I can't help but wonder how much this site turning into a pay site is going to drive down traffic.

I'll keep checking on this site here and there but for the most part I'm done with it.

Here's how I see it: We posters drive traffic to this site, and it costs the N&S very little, since we provide the content for free.

Our ideas and arguments improve this paper. We commenters already provide value. We shouldn't pay for providing value.

At one time, the N&S was pretty good, but, in my opinion, they've relaxed their standards. These forums are the most interesting aspect of the paper to me, but I probably won't decide to pay for them.

I probably won't pay for the N&S. I already pay for three daily papers. The N&S handles local issues adequately. My favorite paper is the Dominion-Post. It's well worth paying for. For another great WV paper, try the Gazette/Daily Mail.

mythravere...i think that would constitute a consensus. i often find myself in a consensus of one...without the bucket.

What a place where the only thing coming back at you is 'thats right!' 'atta boy' and such?

If you want an echo chamber stick your head in a bucket.

...and that's for the PNS, the Times is less expensive.

Posted 884 days ago.

$205.50 is for one year of home delivery of the print edition. I think the digital-only subscription rates start at $17 per month.

It could be a purge. I don't know. Could be some of them just became too much of a nuisance. Like Riki.

My suddenlink bill is 150+ a month. I get internet and HD cable. HD cable is one thing that make me angry.

Its the new standard and they are charging a premium for it. You have to have their box...but and they said it this couldn't happen but before I could receive the basic local channels over their cable without a box...in far clearer HD than what they provide with the box.

hi there mythravere. it is odd that over at the times site, some have posted only to have been deleted while showing a recent post. there might be a correlation between signing out and being locked out. i am not quite sure about that though. it also might possibly be a slow purge of non-subscribers.

luvthesouth

Geezer...that seems pretty high. what services do you get from suddenlink? for about $115.00 a month we get one land line, high speed internet and about 1000 cable channels. last night someone posted that the online subscription for the Times would be about $150.00 annually. i am not certain if the News and Sentinel would be much more than that.

$205.50! For a single year?! LOL!
