In my inbox this evening:
As of today, all Onion Premium accounts have been terminated, and the service itself has been deleted from the Internet.

Current subscribers will apparently get refunds for the unused portion.
Dropping subscriptions for ads? That’s one you don’t see everyday. Beginning of a trend?
