my sentiments exactly.

The first review on this week's Black List sums up my
frustration with constantly registering for things very,
very well. I use three browsers every day and at this
point I just won't read anything on the NYT, Washington
Post, or any others that want the sun and moon to read
one article, once a month. I'll head back to the ap wire
and find the damn thing myself.

i just have a free email account now that i use specifically for these registrations. use the simplest password and username and just let the browser remember the information. as occasionally there's useful information in the WP or NYT that's not in the other things. :\

My problem is not as much registering as having to keep doing so multiple times, and firefox or mozilla will go off and eat my cookies on one of them, and I just gave up a while back and said no more.

One exception I made is one of my local news channel's websites because they have good local radar updated quickly. Even then though, I've made three or four accounts because I keep forgetting user/password.

Already seen it, and still don't want to hand them revenue.

Still doesn't fix the fact that keeping browsers in sync with all of it is a bitch and not worth the trouble.
