Comment We need micropayments (Score 1) 364

A popular web site should not have to pay the bandwidth charges, the costs should be borne by the people who are using the service. There just doesn't happen to be any convenient and low overhead way to do that right now. But that is how things should be structured.

For some reason, none of the micropayment schemes have ever caught on. But they will some day, and then popular web sites can pay the bandwidth charges from that.
