Pay-for-view Websites?

I have hyperlinked the "Websites" entries and have deleted the "Irish Times" link (perhaps more when I check all the links). I'm of the opinion that the listing of pay-for-view websites constitutes free advertising and I'm not sure that this FS Wiki should be in that business, but I'm certainly open to discussion on that topic. If the consensus is that such sites can be legitimately listed, they should at least be identified as a pay-for-view commercial enterprise. Comments? BrklynBridge 17:36, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

This page was too long so I created a separate page for the Substitutes info and added a link to it.  As to the comment, there are so many pay-for-view websites that provide valuable databases that I think it would be a disservice to our audience to not include them.  In most cases you get great value for the cost.  However, the list of websites definitely needs to expand to include descriptions of what they provide and how they provide it.  Now that attention has been drawn to this, I expect it will get taken care of soon.  Thanks for noting it.  BakerBH 22:06, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
