AS a print subscriber I am often frustrated on-line trying to find articles that have been hidden. Writing and interacting with reporters and the editorial staff becomes much more difficult when it seems a curious portion of the print content is not found found on-line. I have wasted too much time trying to find published articles that have been held back from the electronic version. That seems like a vexing dilemma when the Strib is trying to promote thier electronic journalism as a profitable and practical alternative to the printed newspaper. Shouldn't the Strib try to achieve profitability through a reliable, up to date, complete and on-line version that is instantaneously available on anyone's electronic device? Shouldn't marketing innovation and new internet revenue drive this profitability and not information blackouts that struggle to preserve subscription numbers?

Finally! I think it's a great idea to give online access to people who subscribe to the newspaper. Before we knew any better, news organizations got trapped giving it away for free online. So people stopped buying newspapers. This step signals a return to a business model that can pay reporters and editors rather than laying them off.

Stop deleting their online comments when they don't violate your terms of use!

Clean up the garbage on this site and get of the comment system altogether.

Better YET, learn to use the controls and ignore the comments. That way those that enjoy the comments still have them and you don't have to read them.

DON'T takle a cheap shot at community journalists and bloggers and imply that some of us don't work as hard as your staff does. As a longtime community journalist I take great offense at that. And my subscription is due. . . hmm. . .

But I don't have time to read the paper anymore, so I come here for a quick look at local news. Maybe I'll have to look elsewhere.

they still are a business. I dont like them primarily for their liberal bias, but at the same time, I dont know how they survive if everyone reads online and nobody pays for the paper. I myself get it on weekends, because I want to li mit how much I pay them and I dont have time to read the whole thing during the week.

...I could get the content without the tree pulp. Oh well, I guess these non-breaking news stories will be just as good on Wednesday.

True. And if the Strib thinks I'm going to suckered into their pay-to-read scam...wrong!
