'The Register hopes they consider Australia’s plan carefully, as while it compels digital giants to pay publishers it does not require the money to be spent on anything in particular. And Australia’s original plan was to ensure that public interest journalism cold be put on a sustainable financial footing.'
I've never had a response in the comments to my requests to allow me to pay El Reg for an ad free version.
I definitely will pay you for an ad free version if you provide a mechanism for it, and I suspect many people of this parish would do the same.
You have a readership that will both block ads and be willing to pay you for the good tech journalism you provide.
C'mon, make it happen.
