Post Problems

The New York Post, for reasons known only to themselves, has added a registration requirement for its website, instantly making its articles less accessible to regular readers, bloggers, and Googlers alike. And even worse, the process has slowed the website to a crawl. Bad move, Post.

None of the BugMeNot logins seem to work, so I advise that everyone, should you feel like reading the Post, log in under the name "Bupert Lurdoch," with e-mail address, and the password "Bupert."

That way, you'll have access to such wonderful reporting as today's Page Six item on fashion designer Nicole Miller using strippers from Scores West to debut her new lingerie collection, because as everyone knows, "most fashion models are too flat and bony for lingerie."

Or this piece, as the Post trumpets that its total circulation this year rose, literally, by .00001%.

I guess that more and more sites are doing that. Actually most media sites require paiment for the acsess to their articles. That's a common practise.
