I pay nothing to read and write on Independent's website. However, they sell online advertisements here, so they earn income based on my traffic. Previously I didn't subscribe & they didn't get online advertising revenue. Now I get free content & they get advertising revenue - should be a win/win.

Wouldn’t it be prudent to clear the air on your arguments against the bill that could remove public notices from newspapers? What percentage of placement/advertising revenue comes from public notice requirements? Using your forum to present a one-sided argument biased to your own income doesn’t win any points in credible journalism. And, to play counterpoint – why require citizens to pay for a newspaper subscription to see public notices – basically double-taxation for information.
