Are you losing money with your Netflix subscription?

Via Andrew Sullivan, calculate the answer here.  I find, however, that this service does not capture the value of Netflix to me.  What I like about Netflix is that I can put a movie directly into my queue and then forget about it.  It's more a way of organizing information than a means of economizing on movie rental expenses.  But why not just set up a tagging system?  With Netflix, I feel some financial pressure –or should I say the desire to avoid feeling like a non-maximizing idiot? — to work through my queue at a positive rate.  It keeps me watching, or at least trying, more movies than otherwise would be the case.
