I think I mis-understood your original question - I thought you were refering to the Ink June27th shake up as opposed to the new "pay per view" deal.
Be that as it may, my responce may still be appropriate. If Hotbot, MSN and the rest of them don't give a hoot about the freshness or relevance of what they deliver, you can bet they don't care about pay or free.
I think the idea stinks, myself, but again, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the Ink partners to rally around the cause.
