Prediction: 'member when the NYT put some of its Opinion page behind a pay wall, and no one paid, so they just gave up and reverted to the old model? This will happen again. Ain't no way I'm paying for recipes, when recipes are available for free ev.ry.where.
Even if that happens I'll still have lost every recipe I've saved. At least I assume that's what will happen because iirc, when splinky re-subscribed after letting her subscription lapse, all her saved recipes had disappeared.
My plan is to copy any recipe I really want to keep, and then cancel my basic subscription. If I really want to, I'll still be able to read articles through other means. I get that they need to make money, but I'd be less pissed off if they had just raised the price of a subscription a few dollars. But tying a price increase specifically to a section that used to be free is shitty (not the word I want to use, but apparently the desired word has become socially unacceptable).
