With the San Francisco Chronicle "going there" -- as in asking readers to reach for their wallets for the privilege of reading content on its "e-edition" online, we wonder: Is it possible to charge local readers to do what they've grown accustomed to receiving for free or has that horse left its barn long ago?

In any event, the good folks over at the SF Appeal -- which, as of 3 p.m. Wednesday is still a free publication -- have set up a poll querying what, exactly, it would take for you to part with $99 to read the Chron online.

"Man waving gun in my face" is not one of the choices. See what is right here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
