    Pay walls, metered walls, subscriptions, micro-payments. There are so many ways that online publishers are considering charging visitors for content. While most content online was free in the old days of the web, more publications are following the lead of WSJ.com and NYTimes.com and putting up some kind of pay wall — leaky or not. So what’s your philosophy on paying for quality journalism online? Will you pay for content, or a membership with perks, or have you paid enough? Vote in our poll below and share your thoughts in the comments. And if you really want to hear a good debate on pay models, check out the latest Mediatwits podcast.
