Thanks

They dropped the print edition in Texas and equivocated about access to FT.Com. I was using it for teaching purposes in a university–marvelous, ideal vehicle–but their pricing structure and dreadful customer service has led me to this. They obviously don’t give a damn how many educated subscribers they lose.

That is key when it comes to renewal time.

Judge Judy’s bailiff encourages more conversations than the FT’s gated links.

After many failed attempts, I won’t try to share links to friends via IM any more. Email the Lex team in confidence, yes, but share a Lex column with diffidence.

The FT has the best financial writing, read by everyone who’s anyone, to be discussed with nobody in earshot of anybody. They should expand the Food & Drink section, as the FT is almost ideal for mute contemplation during chewy meals. It is still a bit too easy for us subscribers to reach an article, sometimes by accidental straining, sometimes by plain bad luck, but I have faith that the FT can solve this.

Each time it was obvious that the service people I emailed with did not bother to read my complaints.

I am very tempted to end my subscription.

First, I was incorrect about the guid being a reference to the user. It’s only an identifier for the article. Apparently, FT’s code simply checks for the existence of the Authorised=false variable first and if that is found, does not even bother to verify your authorization against your login cookie.

Second, @dopplex, notice that the article you’re redirected to is an old article from 2008. I believe this is caused by the spaces in the text version of the URL that Felix copied. You should be redirected to an error page but you get this one instead. If you try the same thing from the direct link above, you will still run into the paywall.
