Fuck you, New York Times paywall / log in
Let me tell you what hell is. Hell is when you are casually surfing the news in your PJs, and click on a link and
you get hit with that smiling, smarmy hat bastard on the right telling you to log in / give them money.
Hey New York Times, I know you are in hard financial times but why throw good money after bad? Barriers to entry / paywalls will NEVER work. Ever. They just piss your readers off (whew... I almost wrote "customers" there instead of readers. I-rony!)
So get that fedora-waving moron out of my browser and either gimme the content, or keep the whole thing on a non-public server. I dunno what the solution is, but that smiling guy really ticks me off at 10:55 in the morning.
