Inspired by a slashdot comment in an article about The State of Automated Commercial Skipping.

Now I do understand that reality shifts as collective perceptions of it move over time, but am I the only one who remembers that cable TV originally didn't have commercials? That was why you were willing to pay for it. I remember thinking, what a great idea! I would so pay not to watch these stupid commercials! What a great invention; life will be better now.

I told this to my Dad and he looked at me funny. That's not the way he remembers it at all.

So, dear readers[1], did I make this up? Is it just me?
Did cable TV originally have commercials in your universe?
