For every newspaper cancellation that’s trumpeted on Twitter, there are dozens more that people make quietly from the safety of their own computers (or, heaven forbid, by calling customer service). Most Nieman Lab readers — a news-supporting bunch if there ever was one — would understandably rather publicly tout the news subscriptions they are buying.

But that doesn’t mean it’s not fun and interesting to read about the stuff people have decided not to pay for anymore. So, we’re asking: What was the last news subscription you canceled and why? You can take our survey here, or below. While we ask for your name and email so that we know you’re a real person and so that we can get in touch with you if we need to, you’ll be kept fully anonymous (unless you specify otherwise) in our upcoming story on which publications people are breaking ties with. Be as brutally honest as you want; we’re not judging, and we’re taking the survey too.
