    The New York Times popularized the notion of a news organization charging for some content using the “metered pay wall.” That means you get to read a certain number of free articles per month, then you have to pay up. That model is certainly getting around, with many more newspaper sites putting up pay walls, and even blogger Andrew Sullivan using a similar model to charge readers $19.99 per year (with some of his readers paying even more voluntarily). So what happens when you come upon one of these numerous pay walls? Do you pay or move on? Does it depend on the content and how you feel about it? Vote in our poll or explain more in the comments. To see a longer discussion about paid content, check out this week’s podcast.
