Suppose a guy went to an hardware store to purchase a tool, say a hammer. The clerk would then run a credit check to see how much he could afford and quiz him about his intended use of the hammer including if he was going to make any money using the hammer. Then the clerk could then decide on what would be a fair price to charge for the hammer.
Suppose a gal had a sore throat and went to the drugstore to get some cough drops. The clerk would then check how much she could afford to pay, and determine how important her voice was to her earning a living. The clerk could then determine what he could then charge the gal.
In both of these examples the selling price of the product was not based upon the cost of production, but rather the intended use of the product.
I can hear the hammer manufacturer saying he used my hammer to build a million dollar house, of course I deserve a cut of the action, for I made him a tool. Likewise for the gate at the gal's concert ...
Mark Smiles: If you are going to publish a paper with out pictures, you should write enough words to give your customers some editorial content where the pictures would have been.
This protest was incredibly lame.
Say a hotel was interested protesting the low wages they paid their staff so they decided to not provide all the services they charged their customers for, as a result they would not stock their rooms with clean towels.
This newspaper did not reduce it's price while selling less content.
Tiny thumbnails are less content.
Unless you really believe 2 + 2 = 5.
snegron2: I applaud this publication for taking a stance on the importance of photography. I am disappointed and sickened by the 20 somethings and 30 somethings today who are only capable of acknowledging low quality "selfies" shot with their toy camera phones as actual "photography". What a sad,sad art-less generation of techno addicts.
Punishing your customers, by offering them less value for their money, is called "taking a stand"?
I'm sure this will really bring more customers to their door step.
Are you a "low information voter"?
Instead of resorting to insults, how about answering a simple question?
Did they lower the price of the product they were selling?

It looks like the card on the left has a built in flashlight.
