News sites and logins

by coelomic

I absolutely hate it when news sites ask you to login to read their content. In this day and age when every man and his dog who has a blog is a de facto reporter, news is easily accessible. Its okay if they have some great insider scoop that no other news site has, but reporting events that are available elsewhere for free, being offered only to those who login in, duh! I am referring to the coverage of the MWSF 06. I fail to see how they can be blind to the idea that as a websurfer I do not want the hassle of having to remember half a dozen login names and passwords. Make it simple, make it easy and make it free.
