Some answers to questions you might have:
Q: Why is it that every time I visit the site, I have to go to bugmenot again?
A: Because NYTimes is playing a whack-a-mole game with bugmenot.com. Every time a new account gets created on bugmenot, they close it down within a day or two.
Q: Why don't I just create my own account?
A: Two reasons: First, I've tried creating my own accounts and they always seem to just stop working after a while. Second, I really don't see the point of forcing me to create an account to read a newspaper online. It should be a value add sort of deal. If I want to comment on a story, make me create an account.
I guess I just don't understand why the NYTimes runs its website like it does. It gives me a bad feeling every time I visit their website and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Why would you want to do that to people?
