I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.

I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.

Free Registration Required

[ #19454 ]

I'm not a fan of "Free Registration Required". I don't need to provide identity documents to buy a newspaper at the milkbar, and I certainly find no benefit in having to provide details to read the same articles on-line. Matters are even more frustrating when the registration system doesn't actually work, providing an endless loop of "You are already logged in" and "You must register" pages.

Luckily, the newspaper in question that has recently introduced its "Free Registration Required" section has also left in a way whereby users can continue to go straight to the article, with no registration rubbish required at all. It's also allowed by their Terms of Service. Very sensible.

If you know the particular Australian publication in question, and are being frustrated by "Free Registration Provided", just drop me a private e-mail and I'll be happy to help.
