Why [Would] You Join Salon Premium?Good question. I've been waiting for about 6 years for a content site to entice me into a paying subscription for access. I have a poll asking if you would be willing to financially support this site and expected a resounding 'no' to be returned, but I wanted to get a feeling for why. I don't pay for blog access, or online newspaper access and never imagined Salon would hide things behind the curtain that I'd want to reveal by throwing money at them (I don't even sign up for free access). But, they did it.
It's not like I think getting to finish reading the linked article is going to change my life or pay me back the cost of the Premium membership. It's my curiosity. Pique me, get paid.
