Liberating Content From Behind The Registration Gate

BugMeNot.com was created as a mechanism to quickly bypass the login of web sites that require compulsory registration and/or the collection of personal/demographic information (such as the New York Times).
I had never used this tool until moments ago. I’m impressed.
On their site, they point to the anti-registration reasoning behind the service.

-It’s a breach of privacy.
-Sites don’t have a great track record with the whole spam thing.
-It’s contrary to the fundamental spirit of the net. Just ask Google.
-It’s pointless due to the significant percentage of users who enter fake demographic details anyway.
-It’s a waste of time.
-It’s annoying as hell.
-Imagine if every site required registration to access content.
