The Globe is sending notes to subscribers today: Starting Aug. 1 they will no longer get credits for stopping the paper while on vacation, unless their vacations are at least 22 days long.
Don't worry, subscribers: You can still stop the paper coming while you're away, so your house won't look like it's putting out the welcome mat for burglars, it's just that now you'll have to pay the Globe for that privilege.
And as the Globe helpfully reminds subscribers:
Remember, as a subscriber you still have access to the Globe's award-winning coverage even while you're away: Log in to BostonGlobe.com anytime from your phone, tablet or laptop, or download the ePaper, an exact digital replica of the Boston Globe in print.
H/t to the grumpy subscriber who forwarded a copy of the note, who allows that "I guess there's a small upside in that presumably the voice menu prompts will no longer make callers sit through being asked to "donate the value of the ..." to somewhere."
