That’s just typical Reuters for you, there’s no point presenting complaints to Felix (I’ve tried). My best tips are: come back in a few days, or have an array of browsers to try (I now have five at the ready) – one or the other usually gets through.
It surprises me to this day that they would invest real money in their web content (e.g. F.S. can’t be cheap) yet hire neither competent webmasters or put any type of QA team in place. To me this seems inconsistent but I’m sure they have their reasons.

That should add a gajillion false (and annoying) pageviews to todays counts.

Do you think it is sustainable? Examples of this $5 per issue include Time, Wired and Vanity Fair. This must have something to do with advertising revenue, yet the possibility of interactive advertising, shown by Wired earlier this year, has me more interested in reading and/or interacting with advertising then I have ever been. The price difference between a print and electronic subscription is too big for most to make the switch. I can only understand this pricing model in the context of a single issue. Perhaps the yearly subscription pricing models have yet to be determined.
