I can read it after closing an annoying advert that pops up.

@flutherother I don’t see it in this search result, but do you see any article that would be offensive/seen as offensive in its title like ”...bikini clad…”?

The link I posted is from Reuters, just to show what story I’m referring to.

This is the headline: “Blade Runner” Pistorius charged with murdering girlfriend.

The Pistoriius article is from Reuters and not The New York Times. For the record, the Times allows you to read only ten free articles per month and then you must pay. But this doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the Times, unless I am missing something.

@gailcalled I posted that the link in my OP is from Reuters (just to show what story I’m referring to) on one my posts above.

Have you been reading alot of nyt articles? You only get so many a month then you have to subscribe.

^^^Ten articles, as I said.

@trailsillustrated I don’t think so.

But if that is the case why wouldn’t the message be something like: “You have surpasssed your monthly….”, just so people wouldn’t think it is a virus thing or whatever else?

@gailcalled
I don’t mean you’re wrong, since I have seen websites doing things that don’t make sense. It is just to say that it is not a good idea to have it seem what it is not.
