A while back I (unsuccessfully) solicited advice about my gift subscription to Berlingske Tidende. Or rather: What to do, when the subscription ended.
You see, I was certain that Berlingske Tidende wanted subscribers and consequently would somehow approach me in time before the end of the gift subscription. Like in soccer: A loan with the possibility of a permanent move. So the question was: How should I reply to Berlingske’s expected offer to relieve me of some 4500 DKK?
Now the subscription has ended and … well, nothing. Berlingske Tidende hasn’t called me or written or sent an e-mail (they have my address).
So the only conclusion I can draw is that Berlingske Tidende, whose editor is anxiously pushing web micro-payments and gated content as a way of making up for lost revenue from the printed paper doesn’t want me as a subscriber.
Yep, that’s right: Lisbeth Knudsen doesn’t want my money.
I’m, like, heartbroken.
And Berlingske: Don’t call me. I won’t be calling you. Politiken called me. They got my money.
