Why offer RSS feeds when readers need to register for content.

It is plain dumb, and waste of reader’s time. I wish newspapers wouldn’t abuse RSS like this.

Just use bugmenot for these stupid registrations like the rest of us do. A Firefox plugin makes it a single click.

this comes from doing RSS search and setting up alerts in services like technorati and pubsub. anyway how many sites can one register for. new york times is never a problem, for its worth it. but not all papers are worth it

unsubscribe.

Or is that gun pointed at your head making you subscribe to this RSS feed? And going through the hassle of a one time registration?

I’m glad your content is not behind a registration wall, but it has never really hurt to register at NYTimes and such.
