Posting to sites requiring subscription? October 25, 2001 11:12 AM   Subscribe

What's the world view here on posting links to articles that are on a site that requires a paid subscription? Every once in a while, the Wall Street Journal publishes some interesting articles with a unique insight not quite duplicated on a non-subscription site. I'm just trying to avoid a wrist slap here and I couldn't find any threads concerning this using the search function.

I believe MiguelCardoso's subscription is available for everyone's use. Personally, I'm against the proliferation of newspaper article links on the front page, but that's just me

i don't think you should post something that the majority of people on metafilter could not access. if there were some account for them to use on a for-pay site, i suppose that'd be fine, but... that's just my opinion

billman: see this for wrist-slapping purposes. Makes sense, too.
