The flexible paywall that The Boston Globe introduced for its subscription website about a year and a half ago has slowly gotten a little less flexible.
 
Fewer Globe stories are available on the paper’s free Boston.com site, and restrictions have been placed on social sharing. The reason, according to Globe spokeswoman Ellen Clegg, is that the paper’s executives are still trying to figure out how to get paid online journalism right in a world awash in free news.
