About two months ago, I could not access Forbes. I got a message: turn off your ad-blocking software. I didn’t. I notice that Forbes has reverted to its three-second delay strategy.
The Telegraph, a British site, tried the same strategy. That lasted about a month.
I know why. Almost no one turned off the ad-blocking feature. It’s not clear how to do this. I don’t recall. I decided to ignore the problem. There is always some site that offers the same story.
The financial sites, Wall Street Journal and Financial Times still close access. So do the New York Times and the London Times. But revenues keep falling for the two Times’s. No one needs either of these two Establishment outlets. Their information is available elsewhere.
