You're browsing the web and you click a link to an article on a site (let's say nytimes.com) but instead of getting the article you get a screen asking you to login or register. Infuriated at the idea of pointlessly registering for yet another site you turn to your good buddy bugmenot.com

Instructions

STEP 1: Make a note of the website address your are trying to access. For example:
http://www.nytimes.com/cnet/CNET_2100-1024_3-5567274.html
Or even just:
www.nytimes.com
STEP 2: Visit http://bugmenot.com (http://bugmenot.com/)
STEP 3: Enter the address from step 1 into the box and press the "Get Logins" button
STEP 4: You should now be presented with at least one username and password. Make a note of them.
STEP 5: Go back to the site you were originally trying to access in step 1 and proceed to login with the username and password you noted in the previous step.
With any luck you should be able to access your article now!


Important Notes

It's important to note that all of the username/password accounts listed on bugmenot are added by users such as yourself. If you can't find a working login for a site then you are encouraged to register with that site (using fake details of course) and then add the username/password to bugmenot for other users to use. Never enter your real login details into bugmenot- everyone else will be able to see them!
If you find bugmenot useful then please return the favour by telling everyone you know about it. Together we can take back the web.

Thanks, Magda. I love Bug Me Not. If you use Firefox as your browser, there is a Bug Me Not add-in that automatically fills in the form if Bug Me Not has users and passwords for the web site.
