A useful service has been provided for those annoying registration websites (ie NyTimes). I'm sure many of you will appreciate it. (my first post, dont hurt me)

While it is usually my policy to squash any spiders AND bugs that come too close, I'll spare the poster for today.

Who's going to offer their MeFi login? There's a throng of Monkeyfilter users just waiting to make their mark here. [Pause for effect.] Haha. Just kidding.

Monkey in the middle, monkey in the middle.

Why do so many people feel like they are entitled to free content? The New York Times is not free, why should their online news be free? You can't spare your email address for some of the best news writing on the planet?

It would be nice if you could view a list of the sites that have been "liberated".

I think it's mostly the irritation factor. They don't just want your email. They want all kinds of demographics. Which, I suppose, is fine as well. But if you leave anything blank, it dumps you right back to the registration page. And if you clear your browser's cookie-cache, or upgrade your browser, or use different computers, you have to enter all that crap again. It's annoying when you just want to read a single article.

Long ago metafilter was the place to go for the newest on the web. Now metafilter links are posted a month after they've appeared on its very own metatalk.

My the times have changed.

Ha, I love how the site that enables you to bypass registrations uses that "type the number you see below" thing that is supposed to prevent....automatic registrations.
