Bangkok Post moving to pay-per-article - September 27, 2003
We were the first to report last month that Post Books was ceasing
operation at the end of October. We have now learned that Bangkok
Post is porting its online database of past articles into
a pay-per-view system.
The front end of this system is already visible on their new
search page, but past articles are still free at this point.
This new system requires online signup. As usual, do not trust
your personal data to websites in Thailand. Despite their prominent
privacy notice, the Post left names, addresses, phone numbers,
and email addresses of those who signed up clearly visible on
the internet. For instance, the first three people to sign up
were: Hing Wan/David Kwok and Kansak
Wattasirichai from Bangkok, and Naranart
Phuangkanok from Tokyo (we have held
back their other personal details).
UPDATE: The new search page has already been removed and
replaced with the old one.
