"In order to access this content, you must first register online."  Chances are that you have encountered a site that requires you to register in order to receive the content.  You'll routinely see this type of thing on newspaper sites, such as The New York Times.  Many folks give up on reading the content because of these registrations. Why? Is it pure laziness? Maybe.  On top of that, who knows what they're doing with this information? You've probably upped your spam intake by providing your e-mail address and other demographics to these forms. Sure, most people fake this information, but it's still a hassle.

BugMeNot gives you the login codes to a couple thousand of these "free" registration sites. This frees you from the hassle of giving up your personal information. The site is incredibly simple to use. All you have to do is type in the URL of the offending site, and the login information will be given to you. If you have another one that you would like to add, just submit it to the site. BugMeNot is constantly growing with new site submissions, so stay tuned.
