Subject: DK subs

So there is a current total subscription amount....and then a monthly or yearly subscription expires...and the dummies that renew are added to the existing total? Seriously????

Why not just report the number of people who are currently paying for your product? Like everyone else does?

This has ALWAYS sounded fishy to me. Not sure how he can give an honest accounting of his subscriber base in this way. Boil it down to raw human numbers, then let's talk.

Because he has to keep showing growth even though the site peaked and plateaued long ago.

You can't PO a rather significant part of your customer base annually just because they disagree with you and expect to keep growing.

He only PO'd Pirate fans (by rightly exposing them and the ownership as frauds).
Every other fanbase loves him and daily link to his articles.

When i see a number at the bottom of the page that says "34,673 subscriptions", silly me thinks that 34,673 human beings *currently* are paying some semblance to subscribe between $3.99 a month and $250 for infinity (i don't think even DK is stupid enough to offer 99c/year TTM rates, but i digress). Anything other than that is fun with numbers.

In print, the ABC (or whatever it's called this week) was the gold standard for verifying that advertisers were getting the eyeballs the publisher claimed it was.

Online, other than for snarky purposes, who cares what he claims?

For advertisers, it depends on what he's telling them. Raw subscribers doesn't matter as much as specific page views. In fact it might matter less.

What's important is that you don't get the coffee mug or meet-and-greet for a dime less than $250.

Saw The Legend opining about the Steelers on WPXI after the game. Of course he was wearing the official DK Pittsburgh Sports hoodie.

Connecting with the # 3 tv station in town says it all.
