But as I thought about it and started working towards implementing it, I mostly just realized that even if I was trying to be "fair" by only charging those who really consumed a lot of bandwidth by researching old news stories or referencing old TV show results, it wouldn't matter, because there were about a billion ways to UNfairly get around my security measures, and I'm actually pretty unsophisticated when it comes to developing this kind of stuff.
Now, no matter what you think of the guy as a writer/"internet draw", he couldn't have thought that there would be anyone who would've signed up for this ...
