We're not subscribing to those print+online Slack titles either. Who
would? The pricing is ridiculous.

Don't do it, we need to start protesting this by cancelling and/or
our business elsewhere. This is just greed...

Has anyone else been aghast (or should we be surprised at any pricing
these days) of the recent SLACK, Inc. 2008 model for print and
print+online? Based on fte our print subscription, for example, to AAOHN
is $224 and then the online with print goes to $2,240. The rest of the
titles follow the same giant leap pattern ($250/$2500, etc.). I'm not
real good at % but I think this is astronomical.
