all the papers with each one getting a cut of the money based on how many of the subscribers use their site. Limited access is okay but asking someone to buy a subscription because they want to read one article from the Birmingham Bugaboo is ridiculous.

I would think that any site that has a paywall should be required to show that on their main page then perhaps someone will write an addon that warns you if you click on the site before taking you there so the site doesn't get the opportunity to drop cookies on you and tracking sites will not know you went there.
