Man, fucking brutal if so— Nick The Tax Man (@grobot05) March 24, 2018
Did @stltoday go completely behind a pay-wall? Every article/LTTE/OpEd I go to is blocked with a pop-up for the digital subscription. Not complaining, that's their right. Just can't find any info that it happened.— Jim Spies (@spyguy1108) March 23, 2018
When non-subscribers reach their limit of free articles they will be given subscription offers to enjoy STLtoday.com without interruption. Current subscribers will have unlimited access to all STLtoday.com content simply by logging in to their account. Subscribers will also experience faster-loading pages and no survey interruption while on STLtoday.com.The daily has experimented with a paywall in some form or another since April 2014. But it's never been as firm as, say, the Times — initially, it was only quote-unquote premium content behind the "stlEXTRA!" wall, which mostly seemed to translate to Bill McClellan's column. At some point, however, the premium package seems to have been quietly abandoned; in the recent years, even McClellan has been free to read, so long as you answer those survey questions.
Additionally, all subscriptions include the e-replica edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and membership to the Reader Rewards program.
guess I will never read @stltoday again...I will NOT allow ads to be shown on my screen and I will not buy a subscription! I will not be BULLIED by the press!!!— Sean Power (@Sean6971) March 20, 2018
