    Hmm, that site could come in handy to get into those firewalled news articles in the NY Times and such...

    Indeed it does... there's just some places it SHOULDN'T be used IMO, and forums where you're representing yourself as an individual is one of them.

    The new one was me just trying it out. That's why it's nonsense. It doesn't actually work. The fist one is being disabled.


    I can see how the service would be useful, but that kind of thing leaves us open to spam and trolls. It's not too hard to register semi-anonymously. If you don't want people knowing personal info, you just don't talk about it. But we can only have one person posting per account, and also no sock-puppet accounts.

    And I suppose you can use a one-time email service if that bothers you.
