Congratulations, WIRED, you've just lost my business. I won't be linking to you, reading your articles, and I'm cancelling my print subscription. Way to piss off your readers.
ETA: Comments make clear that the static image doesn't convey my objection, which is not to paying for content, nor paywalls in general, but to the specific WIRED implementation which at first looks like a normal page but then gives the visual effect of slamming a door in my face. My objection is not to the principle, but to the user experience.
