Taking away free online access hinders investment

It is too bad that The Maui News is now stifling online visitors from reading full articles unless they subscribe.

Many people I know, including myself and my family, go to The Maui News online daily.

We all visit Maui multiple times annually. Some of us have invested there and some are considering moving there.

The Maui News is hindering investment and tourist income by this practice. Many of us Mainland residents will no longer use The Maui News’ site. I suspect that advertisers will also lose from this practice. Too bad.
