Charging Fees for Mechanical Music Digest
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  I'm glad to see the MMD is again being delivered, but,
as I wrote to another member earlier this morning:

"I still think it would be a good idea to charge for delivery.
Electricity isn't free and charging would weed out those with just a
passing interest.  Besides, they (the MMD) still accept postings from
'outsiders' and those people can visit the site if they don't wish to
pay a yearly fee.  I will write another posting to that effect."

I think this is a cut-and-dry issue.  It doesn't have to be
complicated.  It's like the daily newspaper.  If you want all the news,
have the paper delivered to your door every morning.  Otherwise, wait
for the evening news.

For at least the past three years, I've listened and commented about
the pro's and con's of charging for the MMD.  Now I hear about
complaints that the MMD is being delivered to people who don't want
it.  I think that sums up the need for charging for delivery.
