bugmenot.gifI love documentaries. What’s more, I like to watch the evening news and read the business section in the newspaper. Lately, I’ve been taking this boring-to-the-average-person news from different sources other than mass-media television and newspapers. Now, I get a bunch of RSS feeds mainly from Digg, Google News, and the like. They say that it’s best to get your news from different sources in order to achieve a more well-rounded point of view. Well, my RSS feeds provide just that. Essentially, Digg and Google News are just databases with links to many different top stores from a wide plethora of sources. Sometimes, you’ll read a story from The San Antonio Express News, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Wired Magazine, or (near-majority of the time) even a personal blog/website such as this one!



Compulsory Login

There is just one problem to this seemingly-perfect setup. Some sites (cough, cough Wall Street Journal), require users to register in order to view any articles or content. Some even requires payment or a subscription! Those policies work just fine for people with narrow, anal, and single-minded preferences to news sources. But, most people don’t care if they read about a 25% drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average in the Wall Street Journal or USA Today!

Workaround

Luckily, I read from Digg.com that there is a workaround for this. Enter Bug Me Not! Bug Me Not is a website dedicated to collecting and distributing usernames and passwords from volunteers who believe in a non-compulsory Internet.

Take for example, The New York Times. Now, you don’t have to register (since you forgot your account information from your last registration). Just enter “cocksmokey” for the username and password. Presto! You have access.

Hurdles

In the unfortunate event that the login information provided at Bug Me Not is invalid, just click “No” on the “Did this login work out for you?” dialog. It will help others as they scramble for valid passwords.

Concepts from Web 2.0

If you ever want to share your login with the rest of the world, there is a page for that too. It is a free-to-use website. “What if someone submits false login information to spite everyone else? What if someone clicks ‘No’ so that the login success rate goes down?” you ask. Well compare Bug Me Not to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is pretty reliable so why won’t this be?
